CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by various web 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 Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can set up and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to select on our registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
