CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux releases in existence, however what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to rapidly discover the information which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host private information. Since it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose between 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 requirements of the applications that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create a different account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
