CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions out there, but what distinguishes it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any problem or have some questions, you're able to rapidly discover the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to acquire your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
