CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux releases available, however what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to rapidly discover the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You can pick CentOS for your new virtual private server through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you want to install and work with. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to obtain the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the server like a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an individual account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
