CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's employed by a large number of hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you will be able to install and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
If you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You'll be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select 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. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order your server without 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'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, since this OS is on the list of options that you will be able to select through the order process. As the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. If 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 latest software all the time, so as to ensure the best performance for your web sites.
