CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions out there, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to rapidly discover the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential data. Since it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can select CentOS for your new VPS server
through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and manage. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain
hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to obtain the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server
plans. During the signup process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a different account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
