What number of server Operating Systems will you be able to choose from?
Every desktop or notebook or web server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which interacts with the hardware equipment, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, and any applications that are installed on the system. Any program input through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the Operating System. On a server, each and every app runs within the parameters established by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software such as a media server. If a virtual server is set up on a physical one, there can be two separate Operating Systems, referred to as guest OS and host OS, which means that you will be able to set up a different software environment on the same machine.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers that we offer can be set up with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to give you more flexible packages which will permit you to install and run any kind of web software irrespective of its system requirements. The options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and safe ones, not mentioning that they do not have any license fees. All three have numerous developers who have created a large number of software packages that you can install and use on your server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use is determined by the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. If you need a different OS later, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your machine. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by updating it every week with any patches which are available for it.
