An Operating System is the basic software which manages a computer system. It takes care of how the hardware operates, the communication with peripherals like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, along with the prioritization of applications in case several run simultaneously. Each and every program that's installed on a PC works by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The contact 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 hosting server as well as all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. If there're virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS which runs on the server host OS.

Multiple OS in VPS Servers

Our VPS server solutions come with three Linux releases which you could pick from for the Operating System of your new server - Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. Apart from being 100 % free, the OSs are extremely stable and safe and the key reason to offer all 3 of them is to ensure that you will be able to run each app that you would like, because different pieces of software have different requirements about the environment they work on. Each of the three OSs is supported by a large community of developers who have developed thousands of software packages that you can set up and use on your VPS. In accordance with the Operating System that you select, you will also be able to select between 3 different Control Panels to take care of your website hosting content. Of course, if you decide that you need a different OS, we can always reinstall the server with it. As a paid upgrade, we also provide weekly updates of the Operating System for optimum stability and security.
