CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is employed by lots of website hosting providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you purchase one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You're able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different 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, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order your server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you are able to choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to create a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
