CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, but what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and risk-free Operating System. 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, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you'll be able to promptly get the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Since it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
