Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it is the OS preferred by many hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases in existence, yet what distinguishes it from the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly discover the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host private information. Since 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, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You'll be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order your server with no Control Panel and you will obtain 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 web hosting service for all your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can get CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to pick on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we provide, therefore you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to set up a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
