CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by a lot of 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 really quick and takes negligible resources. What's more, you can install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, since this Operating System is one of the options that you're able to pick during the registration process. As the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and has the latest software at all times, to ensure the best performance for your web sites.
