Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for several hosting providers.
CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is employed by many website hosting suppliers, as it is 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 quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server
throughout the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the chance to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name
hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to acquire your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server
plans that we provide, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website 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. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
