CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to 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 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server
that we supply and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to employ the server for your own Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server
plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you'd like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
