CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is employed by lots of hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to update any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is offered 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 that you need to set up and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also buy a VPS without any 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 set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
