Learn how you could transform your server from the very beginning with a selection of Multiple Operating Systems.
An Operating System is the low-level software which controls a computer. It takes care of how the hardware functions, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, as well as the prioritization of applications in case multiple ones run at once. Every program which is installed on a PC works by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be performed using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the OS is what commands a web server along with all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. When there are virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in VPS Hosting
If you choose to go for one of our virtual private server
packages, you will be able to select one of the three Linux releases which we offer for the OS of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They're among the most well-known and most reliable server OSs out there and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine if you wish to install some application with specific requirements in terms of the packages that must be present on the web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one of them you can use depends on the OS that you have chosen. We leave the option to change the server Operating System open, so when you want to use an application that requires an OS different from the one you already have, we can always re-install the VPS. In addition, we can keep the OS up-to-date weekly by installing any security updates which may be released.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting
We offer three Operating Systems with our dedicated server
solutions - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are all different Linux distributions and we offer them not only because they are 100 % free so they won't increase the low price of your new hosting server, but also because they are outstandingly stable and secure. Each of them is backed up by a huge community of web developers, so you'll be able to choose from a large number software packages that you may install on your server if the application that you want to use has specific requirements. The Operating System will also determine what internet hosting Control Panel you can use since the Control Panels that we offer are compatible with specific OSs only and because we would like to give you as much flexibility as possible, we offer a couple of OSs and multiple Control Panels. If you choose a server with a given OS, we will change it upon request if it turns out that you will need a different one. We can also keep your OS updated on a weekly basis as a part of our additional Managed Services upgrade.
