CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is employed by various hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you'll be able to install and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you order one of our virtual private server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order your 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 enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server
plans. During the registration process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the whole 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 generate a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
