Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for many web hosting companies.
CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by many web hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you purchase one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You will be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you're able to order your server with no Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a safe and reliable hosting service for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you are able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate various web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
