CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by lots of website hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes negligible resources. In addition, you can set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll need to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you obtain one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You'll be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll get 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 hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
