CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by a lot of website hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to generate various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
