CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by numerous website hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you can set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution quickly. An important 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

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to use the server for your own websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
