An Operating System is the low-level software which controls a PC. It controls the way your hardware operates, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between applications, and the prioritization of applications if several run concurrently. Any program that is installed on a computer operates by sending requests to the OS for various services by using an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS can be performed through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the hosting world, the Operating System is what controls a web hosting server together with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also any other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. If there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS which runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions feature three Linux releases that you can choose from for the Operating System of your new hosting server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being free, the OSs are extremely stable and risk-free and the key reason to offer you the three of them is to ensure that you'll be able to run each application that you would like, since different pieces of software could have different requirements regarding the environment they work on. Each one of the three OSs is backed by a large community of developers who have made many hundreds of software packages that you can install and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you select, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to handle your website hosting content. Also, should you decide that you need a different OS, we can always re-install the server with it. As an additional upgrade, we also offer you weekly updates of the Operating System for maximum stability and security.
