CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by a number of website hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you're able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You will be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need 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'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will be able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, therefore you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you set up numerous hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
