CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by many hosting service providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you'll be able to install and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up numerous hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software which you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can pick on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up various web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
