CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by countless website hosting providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is 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 computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You will be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to acquire 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 which you'll be able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, so that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to make various web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without 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.
