An Operating System is the software that interacts with the hardware of a computer and works as the intermediary between applications and the hardware, which includes peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run software, it sends requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the contact is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Just like a personal computer, hosting servers also feature an Operating System that serves as a host for all of the software installed on them, including script apps or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be generated on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment compared to the physical server host Operating System.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting

The dedicated servers that we offer come with three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible solutions that will allow you to install and run any kind of web software regardless of its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most stable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license charges. All three have lots of developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you could install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you sign up. In case you need another OS later on, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches that are released for it.
