CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a number of website hosting service providers, as it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you are able to install and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to choose the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you would like to set up and work with. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to get the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. Also, you can buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
