It's one of the countless Linux distributions out there, however what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a dependable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is considerably longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you will be able to quickly find the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive information. Considering that it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every 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, since you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make many website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you want to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
