CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases out there, but what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is a lot longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to instantly discover the data which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host confidential data. Considering that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we offer and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to employ the server for your sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, because this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you intend to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with various website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're controlling one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the best performance for your sites.
