CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It is employed by a lot of web hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you are able to install and run any web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you will need to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you obtain one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You are able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable website hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to choose through the order process. As the software that you need to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're controlling one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
