CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is used by a large number of website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server
that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - 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 generate a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server
packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to pick from 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 applications that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to take care of the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
