CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases available, yet what distinguishes it from all the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you can quickly find the information which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to use the server for your very own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
