An Operating System is the low-level software which manages a computer. It handles how your hardware behaves, the communication with peripheral devices like a monitor, a printer or a keyboard, the allocation of memory between apps, and the prioritization of applications in case several run at once. Each program that's installed on a computer works by sending requests to the OS for different services using an application program interface (API). The interaction with the OS can be performed via a Graphical User Interface (GUI) or a command line. In the Internet hosting field, the OS is what runs a web hosting server and any software installed on it, which includes not only website scripts, but also every other application for example a VOIP or a game server. If there are virtual machines created, they work with a guest OS that runs on the server host OS.
