CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a number of hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very quick and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you'll always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you get one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You are able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to 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. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which 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 during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
