CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by various website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you're able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will need to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities provided by our VPS hosting plans
. You will get a fast, secure and dependable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own websites and to take care of the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no further software which is usually installed on it, you'll be able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to get one of the dedicated server
packages that we provide, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website.
