CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux releases out there, but what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected OS. Every 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, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to promptly get the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS hosting
. You'll get a quick, safe and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the registration process. You will also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own sites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to generate multiple accounts and give access to others if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that is usually set up on it, you'll be able to get a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server
plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
