CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any problem or have any questions, you're able to rapidly discover the info which you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive information. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify 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, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you're 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 hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, due to the fact that this Operating System is on the list of options that you will be able to pick through the registration process. As the software that you intend to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're controlling a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
