CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's employed by many hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you are able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS web hosting plans. You will get a fast, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your personal sites and to take care of the server as a single very powerful account, or to set up various accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no additional software that is usually installed on it, you will be able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you completely customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you'll be able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you're able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to make a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can 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.
