CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by many website hosting providers, since 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, as it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you'll be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to set up and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your own sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of web hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can obtain a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
