CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by lots of hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version 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

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your own websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, as this OS is on the list of options that you will be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you intend to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're managing a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have individual accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most recent software at all times, to ensure the best performance for your websites.
