CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is used by numerous website hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you're able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you need to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select 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 supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
