CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It is preferred by a number of website hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution in no time. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You can pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to buy your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the entire server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
