CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's preferred by a number of hosting providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. Furthermore, you'll be able to set up and run any web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will need to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution right away. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to set up and run, you'll be 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 of the three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your own sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate numerous web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, since this Operating System is one of the options which you will be able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you want to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the latest software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
