CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by numerous hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. What's more, you are able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to buy the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
