CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's employed by countless hosting suppliers, because 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 is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you will be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate numerous website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you can choose 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 website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
