CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by a large number of website hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you'll be able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to manage the entire server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make a separate account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
