CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by various website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you can install and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System options offered by our VPS servers. You'll get a quick, well-protected and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to maintain the entire server as a very powerful account, or to make many different accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you want to start a hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however without the extra software which is usually installed on it, you will be able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When 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 which are included in the bundle.
