CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is used by a large number of website hosting providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you can set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you buy one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order your server without 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 enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for all of your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you create multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
