CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's preferred by numerous hosting suppliers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you'll be able to install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can function on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free also means that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will obtain 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 your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
