CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions available, however what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and safe OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have any questions, you can rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every 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, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the chance to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you want to install and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
