CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is employed by countless hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you can set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you buy one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You will be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, therefore you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate a variety of web 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 select 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
