CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by lots of website hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you're able to install and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - 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 create various website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll 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 specifications of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web 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 will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
