CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by numerous website hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you can set up and run any web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like to employ the server for your own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create various website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install only the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you're able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to create a variety of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
