Discover why many hosting suppliers go with CentOS as their first choose for a hosting server Operating System.
CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by many hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server
that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your personal websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without 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 set up only the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server
plans which we supply, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
