CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by a large number of website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can modify any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your own web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
