CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions out there, yet what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with almost every other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you are able to rapidly find the information which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we supply and you can select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to install and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, due to the fact that this OS is on the list of options which you'll be able to select during the order process. As the software that you wish to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with various hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
