CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by many web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for 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 huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

When you obtain one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you would like to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to take care of the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
