CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to instantly get the details which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you will be able to modify every 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, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like to use the server for your own Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a number of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without 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 just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the entire server like just a single account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
