CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Also, you can install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our VPS servers. You'll get an efficient, secure and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to generate multiple accounts and give access to others if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that's usually set up on it, you are able to order a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, 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. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps 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 regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
