Multiple OS in VPS Servers
If you decide to acquire one of our VPS server packages, you will be able to choose one of the three Linux distributions that we supply for the Operating System of the servers - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. These are among the most popular and most reliable server OSs on the market and we offer them so that you have a choice for the software environment of your machine if you wish to install some application with specific requirements in terms of the packages that have to be present on the web server. We also offer three hosting Control Panels and which one of them you may use will depend on the OS that you've picked. We leave the option to change the server Operating System open, so if you want to use an application that requires an OS different from the one that's already present, we can always reinstall the VPS. We can also keep the OS up-to-date on a weekly basis by installing all of the security updates that may be released.
Multiple OS in Dedicated Servers
We offer three Operating Systems with our dedicated server solutions - CentOS, Ubuntu and Debian. They are all different Linux distributions and we offer them not only because they are totally free so they will not increase the cost of your new web server, but also because they are very stable and secure. Each one of them is backed up by a large community of developers, so you'll be given the option to choose from a myriad of software packages that you can install on your server in case the application that you want to work with has certain requirements. The Operating System will also determine what hosting Control Panel you can use since the Control Panels that we offer run on particular OSs only and since we want to give you as much flexibility as possible, we offer a couple of OSs and multiple Control Panels. In case you get a server with a certain OS, we will change it upon request in case it turns out that you will need a different one. We could also keep your OS updated on a weekly basis as part of the additional Managed Services upgrade.
