CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases in existence, however what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and safe OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with another OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you are able to quickly discover the data that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host private data. Since it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to set up and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate many hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order 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 you can install just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, as this Operating System is one of the options that you're able to choose through the order process. As the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with different hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're controlling one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the best performance for your sites.
