CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is preferred by a lot of web hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. What's more, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, as this Operating System is on the list of options which you will be able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains
which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your Internet sites.
