CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases available, however what distinguishes it from the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you'll be able to promptly get the details that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host private information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire 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 you can install just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an independent account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
