CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by various hosting service providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you will be able to select 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 specifications of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an individual account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
