CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's preferred by a number of web hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS web hosting service
. You'll get an efficient, safe and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to maintain the entire server as a very powerful account, or to generate multiple accounts and give access to others if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no extra software that is usually set up on it, you will be able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
plans that we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
