CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, but what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is a lot longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can promptly discover the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Since it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to acquire your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you can pick on our registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make numerous website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can 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.
