CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases out there, however what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you'll be able to promptly discover the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive data. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and personalize 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 type.
CentOS in VPS
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and run. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to get the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain 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 software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
