CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential information. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
When you obtain one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you would like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need 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'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the whole server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
