CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, yet what differentiates it from all the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you're able to rapidly get the details that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host private information. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any 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 won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You will be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and work with. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
