CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions out there, yet what distinguishes it from all the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and risk-free Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can quickly discover the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Since it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you would like to set up and manage. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to get the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, since this OS is one of the options which you are able to pick through the order process. Since the software that you intend to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with numerous web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
