CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's used by numerous web hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to set up and work with. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
