CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's preferred by various web hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to get the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an independent account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as 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 have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
