CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is employed by numerous hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you are able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to install and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your very own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a number of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you're able to pick on our registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you make multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
