CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's used by numerous hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to install and work with. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to purchase your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you'll be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate numerous web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to select 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 includes weekly CentOS updates.
