CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions out there, however what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to quickly find the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Since it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS
You will be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to obtain your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, because this Operating System is one of the options which you are able to select through the registration process. As the software that you wish to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software all the time, so as to ensure the best possible performance for your websites.
