CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, yet what distinguishes it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's much longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to promptly find the information which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Considering that it is open-source, you'll be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate various website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install just the software that you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that 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'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
