CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases in existence, yet what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can rapidly find the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host private info. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create numerous web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
