See why a lot of hosting providers go with CentOS as their first choose for a web server Operating System.
CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by lots of hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you acquire one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you'll 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 us, you will enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for all your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to manage the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
