CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's used by many hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. What's more, you can set up and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to update any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever have any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you get one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You'll be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order your server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you wish to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to control the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
