CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by numerous hosting providers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you can install and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you would like to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create many website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can 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 that you can install just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
