CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's preferred by many website hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. Furthermore, you are able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution right away. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the server as a single account. You will also have the option to get the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to create various hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
