Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's a lot longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you can rapidly find the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive info. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS
If you get one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you wish to install 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 throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order your server without 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 safe and reliable hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server
packages. During the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
