CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's employed by lots of hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. Also, you are able to install and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll 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 safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

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

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you can select on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create a number of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
