CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is used by a number of hosting providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you'll be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS servers. You'll get an efficient, risk-free and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own websites and to take care of the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to make multiple accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you wish to start a hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the further software that's usually set up on it, you are able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
