CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's employed by a large number of website hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you are able to install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System choices offered by our VPS servers. You will get an efficient, secure and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your sites and to maintain the whole server as a very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however without the further software that is usually set up on it, you're able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to entirely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
