CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is preferred by many website hosting providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you are able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to order the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
