Get familiar with the CentOS Operating System. Find out why it is the preferred distro of Linux for countless hosting companies.
CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's employed by countless web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you order one of our VPS server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server with no Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this Operating System is one of the options that you are able to select through the order process. As the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with different website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domain names
which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and has the most recent software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
