CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. Also, you can set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up various web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase 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 set up only the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, since this OS is on the list of options which you will be able to select through the order process. Since the software that you would like to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most recent software at all times, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
