An Operating System is the basic software which manages a computer system. It controls how your hardware operates, the communication with peripherals including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between all the applications, plus the prioritization of applications if several run at the same time. Any program that is installed on a computer works by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The communication with the OS can be performed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the OS is what commands a hosting server together with all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application for example a VOIP or a game server. In case there are virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer can be set up with as many as 3 different Operating Systems because we want to give you more flexible packages which will enable you to install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. The choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most reliable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any kind of license fees. All three have lots of developers that have created countless software packages that you'll be able to install and use on your server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need some other OS later on, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches which are available for it.
