CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is employed by various website hosting providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your personal web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will be able to choose on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you set up numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
