CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, but what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is considerably longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to promptly find the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities provided by our VPS plans
. You'll get an efficient, risk-free and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to control the whole server as one very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no further software which is usually set up on it, you'll be able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
plans that we provide, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name
or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead 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 signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
