CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a dependable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you can instantly discover the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any 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 install only the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
