CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is employed by numerous web hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you can set up and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to use the server for your web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to make a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
