CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is preferred by various web hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports multiple website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to order your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you can pick on our registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate multiple web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web 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 just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
