CentOS is among the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by various web hosting suppliers, because it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. What's more, you are able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to modify any part of your Operating System in accordance with your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You can acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you set up various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
