Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the favorite distro of Linux for a number of web hosts.
CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions available, but what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's a lot longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you're able to promptly get the data that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive info. Since it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server
that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to set up and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to take care of the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
