CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases in existence, but what distinguishes it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's a lot longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you can instantly get the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you buy one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order the server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for all of your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server
plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
