CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is employed by a lot of web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. In addition, you can install and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to control the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
