It is one of the countless Linux releases out there, yet what distinguishes it from all of the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is much longer than with almost every other OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you will be able to instantly find the info which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify any 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, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your personal sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a variety of hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also acquire a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
