CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, but what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is much longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you're able to instantly get the data which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you order one of our VPS server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you're able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to make numerous web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick 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 includes weekly CentOS updates.
