An Operating System is the software that communicates with the hardware of a computer and serves as the intermediary between apps and the hardware, including peripherals such as a printer, a mouse or a keyboard. When you run an app, it transfers requests to the OS through an API (Application Program Interface) and the communication is done through a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A lot like a personal computer, hosting servers also have an Operating System that acts as a host for the software installed on them, which includes 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 could install a guest OS on it and have a different system environment in contrast with the physical server host OS.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers
we offer can be set up with three different Operating Systems since we want to offer you more flexible solutions which will let you install and run any kind of web software whatever its system requirements. Your options are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are among the most dependable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any kind of license costs. All three have thousands of developers that have created a huge number of software packages that you can install and use on your server. We also offer three internet hosting Control Panels and which one you can use depends on the Operating System that you choose when you register. If you need a new OS subsequently, it won't be a problem because we can always reinstall your server. With our Managed Services package we could also keep your OS secure by upgrading it on a weekly basis with all patches that are released for it.
