CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is employed by many website hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to modify any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we supply and you can 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 are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you'll be able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to make multiple web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
