CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is used by a large number of website hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you're able to install and run any web app, provided that it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a safe and dependable 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 several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to use the server for your personal sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make many web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS without 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 you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
