CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions available, however what distinguishes it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is considerably longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to instantly discover the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to pick the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to acquire the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to set up a number of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
