Learn more about the CentOS Linux distribution and why it's the OS preferred by many hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux releases available, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is considerably longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to rapidly discover the info that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
If you buy one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You are able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you're able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll get 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 hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
