CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions available, but what distinguishes it from all of the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you'll be able to rapidly get the details that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you want to set up and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the option to buy your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place 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 throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
