CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is employed by various web hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you're able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will need to pay for your server, and not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to install and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, since this Operating System is on the list of options which you'll be able to select through the registration process. Since the software that you want to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have different accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your websites.
