CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases in existence, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's a lot longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to promptly get the info which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
When you order one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You're able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all of your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to make a number of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
