CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions in existence, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's considerably longer than with another OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to quickly discover the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without Control Panel and you will get 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 hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an individual account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
