CentOS is among the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by many website hosting suppliers, because it is 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, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to install and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make many website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an individual account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select 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 supply weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
