CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, however what distinguishes it from the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is considerably longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you will be able to quickly get the information which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to use the server for your very own sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create various web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also purchase 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 you can install only the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you'll be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
