CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by a number of website hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes negligible resources. Also, you can set up and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any 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 install just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You can get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, which means that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
