Discover why countless hosting providers go with CentOS as their first choose for a web server OS.
CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by lots of hosting service providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you're able to install and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server
that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate numerous website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
plans which we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that 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 signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
