CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a large number of hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. What's more, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS hosting plans
. You will get a quick, well-protected and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to maintain the entire server as one very powerful account, or to set up different accounts and give access to others if, for example, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but without the further software which is usually set up on it, you're able to obtain a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this Operating System is on the list of options which you are able to choose during the registration process. As the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of website hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server as if you're controlling one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have distinct accounts for the domain names
which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, so as to ensure the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
