CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases available, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is a lot longer than with any other OS available 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 can instantly find the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you're 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 won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your very own sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also buy 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 just the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you'd like 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 example, you are able to manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a different account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
