CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's preferred by a number of hosting service providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes negligible resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on 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'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for all your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to take care of the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
