CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by a lot of website hosting providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to update any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the server like a single account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a different account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
