Discover why many web hosts go with CentOS as their first pick for a web server Operating System.
CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is employed by a lot of hosting suppliers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different 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, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server with no 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 hosting service for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate numerous hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
