CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and safe OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's 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 experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly get the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even if you host private information. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable hosting service for all of your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can get CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you will be able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to set up multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
