CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is used by lots of website hosting providers, because 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, as 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 operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities provided by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You will get an efficient, safe and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You may also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to manage the entire server as a very powerful account, or to create different accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you want to start a hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet with no further software that is usually installed on it, you can acquire a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the package.
