Multiple OS in VPS
In case you select one of our virtual private server plans, you will have as many as 3 different Operating Systems to choose from - CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. They are all Linux releases and we offer them instead of offering just a single OS, since the applications that you may wish to run on the server could have specific requirements for the software environment. Each one of these three has some advantages regarding the available packages that you can later install, but what is common between them is the fact that they're very stable and reliable and have huge communities that support them. The hosting Control Panel options for the VPS accounts depend on your Operating System choice, in order to provide you with more flexibility. When you order the virtual server with one OS and you need a different one later, our tech support team can easily reinstall the VPS with the new one in just a few minutes. We also offer the option to maintain the Operating System on your server up-to-date on a weekly basis.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Hosting
In case you decide to buy one of our dedicated servers, you'll find three Operating Systems on the registration page because we want to give you a larger choice regarding the system environment on your server as different apps could have particular requirements. CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian contain different modules developed by their vast support communities, so you can select each of these OSs and benefit from a stable and secure web hosting service. Depending on your decision, you'll also have different Control Panels to choose from. Needless to say, we can always change the Operating System if the one you've selected initially doesn't meet the requirements of the software which you would like to run. We can also update your OS on a regular basis in order to keep it as secure as possible using our Managed Services upgrade package.
