CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by a lot of hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you can set up and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your personal websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you are able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to set up multiple hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
