CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions available, however what differentiates it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any problem or have any questions, you will be able to promptly find the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even if you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify 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
You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to pick the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to order the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
