CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases in existence, however what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to promptly discover the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host private info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you would like to employ the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you are able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you generate various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
