Find out which Operating Systems you are able to run on your server.
Each and every desktop or notebook or server is run by an Operating System - the low-level program which communicates with the computer hardware, including peripherals such as a mouse or a printer, along with any apps that are currently installed on your system. Any program input using a command line or a Graphical User Interface (GUI) is processed by sending an Application Program Interface (API) request to the OS. On a server, each application runs within the parameters specified by the OS as well - priority, physical memory, processing time, etc. This goes for both standard Internet site scripts and server-side software like 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'll be able to set up a different software environment on a single machine.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
The dedicated servers we offer come with as many as three different Operating Systems as we want to offer you more versatile packages which will allow you to install and run any web software irrespective of its system requirements. Your choices are CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and these 3 OSs are some of the most reliable and risk-free ones, not mentioning that they don't have any license costs. All three have thousands of developers that have created countless software packages that you can install and use on your web 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 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 upgrading it every week with any patches that are available for it.
