CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's preferred by a large number of web hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your very own sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
