CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by many web hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal resources. What's more, you will 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're able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your personal web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software which you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you'll be able to choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
