CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by a lot of hosting service providers, because 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, as it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities provided by our Linux VPS plans
. You will get a quick, secure and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to control the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to set up multiple accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the additional software which is usually installed on it, you are able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you entirely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server
that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you create various web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
