CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's preferred by countless web hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to install and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to employ the server for your websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, since this OS is one of the options that you're able to pick through the order process. Since the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server as if you're managing a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and has the latest software at all times, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
