CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's preferred by countless website hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release 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 Web Hosting

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you would like to use the server for your own sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
