CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by a lot of web hosting service providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you are able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten 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 provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to install and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to employ the server for your own websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up numerous website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to control the entire server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
