CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases available, however what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a dependable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you can rapidly get the details which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Since it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every 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 have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is one of several Operating System options offered by our Linux VPS
. You'll get an efficient, safe and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own sites and to manage the entire server as a very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet with no further software which is usually set up on it, you are able to purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
packages that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
