CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is considerably longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to rapidly discover the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host confidential data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You will get an efficient, risk-free and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to maintain the whole server as a very powerful account, or to set up a number of accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the further software which is usually installed on it, you are able to acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to completely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up 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 our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
