An Operating System is the fundamental software which manages a PC. It controls the way the hardware functions, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between apps, and the prioritization of apps if multiple ones run at the same time. Every program which is installed on a laptop or a desktop works by sending requests to the OS for various services via an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be achieved through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting world, the OS is what commands a server along with any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for instance a VOIP or a game server. In case there're virtual machines created, they use a guest OS that is run on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Hosting

Our virtual private server solutions feature three Linux releases which you may select from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Aside from being absolutely free, the OSs are very stable and risk-free and the primary reason to offer the three of them is to make sure that you will be able to run any kind of app that you would like, since different pieces of software have different requirements regarding the environment they can be used on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a huge community of web developers who have made many hundreds of software packages which you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System which you pick, you will also be able to select between three different Control Panels to control your hosting content. Needless to say, should you decide that you need another OS, we could always re-install the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also offer weekly updates of the OS for optimum stability and security.
