CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a large number of website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you will be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will have to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System options provided by our VPS hosting services. You will get an efficient, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to take care of the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to create multiple accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the further software which is usually set up on it, you can order a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a different account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
