CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by lots of website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. What's more, you can install and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to select the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to order your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
