CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by a large number of hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you're able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating System options offered by our Linux VPS hosting. You will get a quick, secure and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the registration process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your own websites and to manage the whole server as a very powerful account, or to make different accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software that is usually installed on it, you can buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.
