An Operating System is the software that communicates with the hardware of a computer system and is the intermediary between apps and the hardware, including peripheral devices such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an app, it sends requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done via a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Similar to a personal computer, hosting servers also use an Operating System which serves as a host for the software installed on them, including script applications or server-side software such as a flash server, a VOIP server, etc. A virtual machine can be set up on a physical one, so you will be able to install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host Operating System.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile solutions which will permit you to 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 secure ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have lots of developers who have created numerous software packages that you could install and use on your hosting server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you select when you register. If you need a new OS subsequently, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by upgrading it every week with all patches which are available for it.
