An Operating System is the basic software which manages a computer. It takes care of the way the hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between the installed applications, and the prioritization of apps when multiple ones run concurrently. Each program that's installed on a notebook or a desktop works by sending requests to the OS for different 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 web hosting field, the OS is what controls a server along with all of the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also any other application for example a VOIP or a game server. When there are virtual machines created, they employ a guest OS which is run on the server host OS.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
that we offer can be installed with as many as three different Operating Systems because we want to give you more versatile packages that will let you 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 dependable and risk-free 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'll be able to install and use on your web server. We also offer three web hosting Control Panels and which one you can use will depend on the Operating System that you choose when you sign up. In case you need a new OS later on, it will not be a problem since we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we can also keep your OS secure by updating it on a weekly basis with any patches that are available for it.
