CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by a large number of website hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the chance to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and control the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to acquire the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can take care of the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a separate account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
