CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions in existence, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the 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 considerably longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to promptly discover the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host private data. Because it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to pick the one that is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the option to acquire your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, because this Operating System is one of the options which you can choose during the order process. As the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to control the server like you're controlling one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have independent accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
