CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's employed by lots of web hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. Also, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, that will cut down your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating System options provided by our VPS hosting plans. You will get a fast, well-protected and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the registration process. You'll also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal sites and to take care of the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to create various accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no extra software which is usually set up on it, you can obtain a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
