CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by lots of web hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain name 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 server as one single account. You'll also have the option to buy the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you will 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 wish to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, that can 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, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
