Each PC or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program that communicates with the hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, as well as any apps that are currently installed on the system. Any program input through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the OS. On a server, each application runs within the parameters defined by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, and so on. This is valid for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like a media server. If a virtual server is generated on a physical one, there can be two independent Operating Systems, named guest OS and host OS, which means that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer come with three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more versatile packages which will enable you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are among the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have numerous developers who have created numerous software packages that you could install and use on your web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. In case you need a new OS subsequently, it won't be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches which are available for it.
