CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to quickly find the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive info. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you acquire one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order your server with no Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server
plans. 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 specifications of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
