CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by a number of hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you can set up and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS
If you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
