CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by many web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you can set up and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server with no Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable website hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, as this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to control the server like you're controlling one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, so as to guarantee the best performance for your Internet sites.
