CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by a large number of 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 OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You are able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you'll be able to order your server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead 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 regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
