An Operating System is the low-level software that manages a computer system. It controls how your hardware behaves, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, as well as the prioritization of apps when multiple ones run concurrently. Every program which is installed on a desktop or a notebook operates by sending requests to the OS for various services using an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS is possible through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the OS is what commands a web hosting server along with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. In case there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems since we want to give you more versatile solutions that will let you install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license charges. All three have lots of developers that have created countless software packages that you could install and use on your web server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. If you need a different OS afterwards, 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 every week with all patches that are available for it.
