CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by a number of web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you'll be able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on our registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, therefore you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you set up a number of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you are able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
