CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is employed by a number of website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. What's more, you'll be able to install and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You'll be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order the server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
