CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by various hosting service providers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. In addition, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of your Operating System according to 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, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

When you acquire one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you'll be able to order your server with no 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'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you are able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you make a variety of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
