CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, but what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's a lot longer than with any other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to quickly get the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host private info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to 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 sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you purchase one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You are able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this OS is on the list of options that you're able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you want to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
