CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by numerous web hosting service providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. Also, you'll be able to install and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to adjust any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You will be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order your server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
