CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases in existence, but what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you're able to instantly discover the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications 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 regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
