CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by numerous website hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you are able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to update any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you order one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have 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 our company, you'll have a protected and reliable hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
