CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by many website hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to buy the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
