CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It is used by many website hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter 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 release is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would 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 all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase 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 that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, as this OS is one of the options which you will be able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're managing a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to guarantee the best performance for your websites.
