CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is employed by many 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 Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase 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 just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made 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 the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
