CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by a large number of website hosting providers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make a variety of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, because this OS is one of the options that you are able to choose through the registration process. Since the software that you need to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're managing a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have distinct accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software all the time, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
