CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by various web hosting providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes negligible system resources. Also, you are able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to choose the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and manage. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to buy your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a separate account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in 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 secure software on the dedicated server.
