Discover why a large number of hosting providers go with CentOS as their first pick for a hosting server Operating System.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, yet what differentiates it from all the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's considerably longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have some questions, you're able to quickly find the info which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host private information. Since it is open-source, you'll be able to modify each and 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 type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server
through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain
hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the option to order the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
