CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions out there, yet what distinguishes it from all the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any problem or have some questions, you are able to promptly get the information which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server
that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your very own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple web hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
