An Operating System is the basic software that manages a PC. It takes care of the way the hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices including a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, as well as the prioritization of apps in case multiple ones run at once. Every program that is installed on a desktop or a laptop functions by sending requests to the OS for different services by using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be performed through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting field, the Operating System is what controls a 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. When there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers

The dedicated servers we offer can be installed with as many as 3 different Operating Systems since we want to give you more flexible packages which will enable you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created numerous software packages that you can 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 choose when you register. If you need a new OS later, it will not be a problem as we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with any patches that are available for it.
