CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions available, yet what distinguishes it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and protected OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you encounter any problem or have any questions, you can rapidly discover the info that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host private data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, 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 type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to choose the one that is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to create a variety of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
