CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases in existence, but what differentiates it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and secure OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is considerably longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you can instantly discover the data which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive info. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to set up and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to use the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without 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 set up only the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
