Find out more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it has become the OS preferred by several hosting providers.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you are able to promptly get the data which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive data. Because it is open-source, you're 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, because you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options offered by our VPS servers
. You will get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to take care of the server as a single very powerful account, or to create different accounts and give access to others if, for example, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you are able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to completely modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
plans which we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain
or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
