CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases available, however what distinguishes it from all the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and secure OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's a lot longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you can promptly get the data that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to employ the server for your own sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
