See why a lot of web hosts go with CentOS as their first pick for a server OS.
CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you want 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 our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you're able to select during the order process. As the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to control the server like you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domains
which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
