CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by lots of website hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to install and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You're able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you can choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can choose 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.
