See why countless web hosts go with CentOS as their first pick for a hosting server Operating System.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, however what differentiates 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 a decade, which is much longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you'll be able to promptly find the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS servers
. You'll get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the signup process. You'll also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your sites and to manage the server as one very powerful account, or to make different accounts and give access to others if, for example, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no additional software which is usually installed on it, you can order a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to completely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this Operating System is on the list of options which you can choose through the order process. Since the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domains
that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to ensure the best performance for your sites.
