CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions available, however what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to rapidly find the details which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host private information. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server
throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and work with. 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'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name
hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to acquire your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, since this OS is one of the options that you are able to select through the registration process. Since the software that you intend to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with numerous hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server as if you're controlling one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have distinct accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software all the time, to ensure the best performance for your Internet sites.
