CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases available, but what differentiates it from all of the rest is its 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 a lot longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly discover the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential data. Considering that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create many web hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, therefore you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
