CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions available, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is much longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly discover the data that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host private info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
You will be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the server as one single account. You will also have the option to acquire your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we supply.
