It's one of the countless Linux releases out there, yet what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and secure Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's a lot longer than with almost every other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you are able to quickly get the information which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even when you host private info. Because it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate many hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
