CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is employed by many hosting providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate many hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup 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 specifications of the applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
