CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by lots of web hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes negligible resources. Furthermore, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution right away. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, which means that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and manage. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to get your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
