Inform yourself about the CentOS Operating System. Learn why it is the preferred distro of Linux for a number of web hosting companies.
CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer 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's is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server
during the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for each domain
hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the option to get the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you're able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create a variety of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
