CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by lots of hosting providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you're able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
You can pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to pick the one that is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports multiple 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 every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the option to buy the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead 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 sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
