CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases out there, yet what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you are able to quickly discover the details that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you acquire one of our virtual private server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You are able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, since this OS is one of the options which you are able to pick during the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server like you're managing one very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have individual accounts for the domains
which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, to ensure the best possible performance for your websites.
