CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by a large number of hosting service providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. In addition, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you'd like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
