CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's preferred by a lot of hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. What's more, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll need to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you get one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you'd like to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to manage the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
