CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by numerous hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can modify any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you buy one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you're 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 secure and reliable hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server
that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate numerous web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
