CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to promptly get the info which you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential information. 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, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you purchase one of our VPS server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, therefore you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to generate a number of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can choose 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.
