CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a lot of web hosting providers, because 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, as it's also very quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, which means that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to choose the one that is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to acquire the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to select on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
