CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by numerous web hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you're able to install and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your personal Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create multiple website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up multiple website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
