CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases out there, yet what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's considerably longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any problem or have some questions, you will be able to promptly find the information which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Because it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, 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 type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we provide and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you wish to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
