CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by a lot of website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order your server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable hosting service for all of your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a different account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly 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.
