Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Find out why it is the favorite distro of Linux for a variety of hosting companies.
CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions in existence, yet what differentiates it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to promptly find the details that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
If you purchase one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, as this OS is one of the options which you can choose through the registration process. Since the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domains
that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is secure and has the latest software all the time, to ensure the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
