CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux releases available, yet what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's much longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly discover the details which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS servers
. You will get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the registration process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to control the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the extra software that is usually set up on it, you will be able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you completely customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to generate a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
