CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is employed by a large number of website hosting service providers, because it's 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, as it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you would like to set up and manage. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make 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 domains together and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to order the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you want to install. 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 instance, you are able to control the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
