An Operating System is the low-level software that controls a computer system. It controls how the hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, along with the prioritization of apps when multiple ones run simultaneously. Each and every program that is installed on a PC operates by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be performed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the Operating System is what runs a web hosting server as well as all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. If there're virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Web Hosting

The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more flexible solutions that will let you install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. The options 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 kind of license charges. All three have numerous developers that have created numerous software packages that you may install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you select when you register. In case you need some other OS afterwards, it won't be a problem as we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with any patches that are available for it.
