CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by various web hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create many website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase 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 applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
