CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, however what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and safe OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to instantly get the info which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive data. Since it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your very own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to pick on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer, which means that you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to generate numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
