CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's preferred by countless hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you buy one of our VPS server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web 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, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server with no 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 hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name
or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can buy a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
