CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you can promptly discover the data that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Since it is open-source, you'll be able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS
When you purchase one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You will be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order your server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this OS is one of the options that you can choose during the registration process. As the software that you need to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, to guarantee the optimum performance for your web sites.
