CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by various hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you can install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different 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 us, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 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 website hosting Control Panels that we supply, therefore you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up numerous web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
