CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by a lot of website hosting suppliers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to use the server for your own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a number of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
