CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by a large number of website hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon 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 would like 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 create a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
