CentOS-powered VPS hosting packages at wholesale prices
Resellers Panel's VPS hosting platform operates on high quality CentOS-based VPS servers. Our fully featured CentOS VPS packages provide our clients with an isolated and secure environment for their web applications. By purchasing a CentOS package at a wholesale price, you’ll be able to use the WHM web hosting management tool and easily become a VPS hosting reseller by creating smaller web hosting packages. Also, if you are a member of our Free Reseller Program you can resell CentOS packages without the need to buy them first.
Why a CentOS Web Hosting Service?
As an approved Linux server distribution, CentOS is a common choice for a web hosting server. One of the main reasons for that is the large supportive community, the responsive team of developers and the extensive software base. CentOS is also a popular backbone for the cPanel Web Hosting Control Panel and its WHM reseller hosting module. Another reseller web hosting option is the DirectAdmin Control Panel which is provided as a FREE gift with some of our CentOS VPS plans, offering you full control over your web hosting server. As a web hosting server, CentOS runs the popular LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) platform which can be easily installed thanks to the Yum Package Manager. There are also many other applications which can be installed, including DNS server, PostgreSQL server and other solutions.
What is CentOS?
CentOS stands for Community ENTerprise Operating System. It is a server distribution meant to be used in a production environment. Just as Fedora Core, CentOs is a Red Hat Enterprise Linux derivative, "specialized" in providing all Red Hat's server features except the expensive, official support from the vendor. As a distro that may be run without any desktop-like user interface, CentOS provides a robust and secure service. This Linux server distribution is designed to work without frequent reboots. Focused on server stability and security, CentOS is upgraded only when it really becomes a must, because the inclusion of even the simplest binaries could be quite risky for the server setup.
CentOS as a Virtualization Server
Offering support for the newest virtualization technologies, CentOS is a great choice for running a virtualization server. The latest CentOS version provides support for Xen Hypervisor, KVM, OpenVZ, Virtuozzo and more.
Knowing the benefits offered by CentOS, we, at Resellers Panel, decided to start running a CentOS-based VPS hosting service. Powered by the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers operating system virtualization solution, our CentOS virtualization server provides increased server utilization as compared to other virtualization technologies like Xen Hypervisor. The higher utilization of our existing servers means cost savings, which allow us to provide our customers not only with low cost, but even with frankly cheap VPS hosting packages.
CentOS VPS Hosting
As we mentioned above, we are offering CentOS-based VPS hosting servers. But as an excellent hosting platform, CentOS is suitable not only as a VPS hosting solution, but also as a virtual machine guest operating system. As a guest virtual machine, CentOS is the only Linux distribution offered by Resellers Panel which can utilize the cPanel/WHM reseller and web hosting management panel and the DirectAdmin Control Panel. Both management options are available for optional purchase and are set up by our administrators.
