CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is preferred by countless hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you can install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create a number of hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
