CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by many web hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you will be able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS hosting plans
. You'll get a fast, safe and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to set up different accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you'll be able to purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to entirely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
