Find out which Operating Systems you'll be able to run on your server.
An Operating System is the fundamental software which manages a computer. It controls the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripherals including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, plus the prioritization of apps in case multiple ones run simultaneously. Every program that is installed on a computer operates by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS is possible using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting field, the OS is what commands a hosting server as well as all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. When there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting
The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile solutions that will let you install and run any web software whatever its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these three OSs are some of the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license costs. All three have lots of developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your web hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a new 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 on a weekly basis with all patches which are released for it.
