CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you are able to quickly discover the info which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and 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 need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a number of website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you want for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to pick on our order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, therefore you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a 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 website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
