CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by many website hosting suppliers, as 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 very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to adjust any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the option to get your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, since this OS is on the list of options which you will be able to choose through the order process. As the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a number of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your websites.
