CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by a large number of web hosting service providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will have to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to employ the server for your own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make many website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, because this OS is one of the options that you are able to select through 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 web hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
