CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's used by many web hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you can install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to adjust any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to set up and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage 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 may also get a VPS without any 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 just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you can pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate a variety of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
