CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by numerous website hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you're able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating System choices offered by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You will get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to manage the server as a single very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that's usually installed on it, you're able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to completely modify the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
