CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by countless website hosting providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal resources. Also, you are able to install and run any web application, provided that it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release 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 Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to set up and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish 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 resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to manage the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
