CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, yet what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can promptly discover the details that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to 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, since you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we offer and you can select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to choose during the order process. As the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're controlling one very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your websites.
