CentOS is one of the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's used by lots of hosting suppliers, as it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can run on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to update any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free means that you will need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we provide 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'd like to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your personal sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
