CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by various web hosting providers, as it is 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, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you would like to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web 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, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable web hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select 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 provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
