CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by numerous web hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server
through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain
hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to purchase your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. 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 create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
