Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is longer than with almost every other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to quickly find the info that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any 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, because you won't need to pay license fees of any type.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS plans
. You will get a fast, well-protected and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the registration process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your sites and to maintain the server as one very powerful account, or to make a number of accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you'll be able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to completely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you can pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you make numerous hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
