Discover more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS of choice for several hosting companies.
CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by a number of web hosting 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, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server
through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you want to install and work with. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name
hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to purchase your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the signup process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to take care of the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
