CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, however what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and protected OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you can promptly find the data which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we offer and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without 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 only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
