CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a large number of hosting service providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you can install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web 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 is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to generate a number of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to pick 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, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
