CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is used by a number of web hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to set up and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just 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 offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
