CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's preferred by a number of web hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
If you order one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You're able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you want to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you can order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server
plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you'd like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to take care of the server like just a single account whatever the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a separate account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
