CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions out there, but what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is much longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have any questions, you are able to rapidly find the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential information. Because it is open-source, you're 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, since you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to buy your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
