An Operating System is the fundamental software which controls a computer system. It handles how your hardware operates, the communication with peripherals such as a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between your applications, along with the prioritization of apps when multiple ones run concurrently. Any program that is installed on a notebook or a desktop functions by sending requests to the OS for different services via an application program interface (API). The contact with the OS is possible through a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting field, the OS is what controls a server and all the software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but, in addition any other application such as 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 VPS Hosting

We offer you as many as 3 different Linux releases for the Operating System of our virtual private servers - Debian, CentOS and Ubuntu. These are some of the most stable and reliable OSs you can find and we provide all three rather than only 1 as we realize that you may want to set up some software which has specific requirements regarding the Operating System it shall run on. The latter is due to the fact that each of the three Operating Systems has a large support community behind it and there're different software applications you may install on the hosting server. Your OS selection will also determine what hosting Control Panel can be set up on the VPS if you want to use one and that's why we offer several Control Panels as well. In case you decide that you want another OS, our tech support team can quickly wipe the existing one and set up the one that you would like. We also offer an optional service to have the OS on your VPS updated weekly.
