CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by a number of hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you're able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. An important benefit 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 will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to install and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you can pick 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 applications that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to manage the entire server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a different account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
