CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by many web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you want to install and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the choice to order the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you wish to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to take care of the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
