CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's used by a large number of web hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you are able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and run. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to obtain the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, as this OS is on the list of options that you are able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're managing one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and has the latest software all the time, so as to guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
