CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is preferred by a number of website hosting service providers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. What's more, you will be able to install and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can find a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you can 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 can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you would like to use the server for your own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you'll 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 Web Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, because this OS is one of the options which you're able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server as if you're managing a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the latest software all the time, in order to ensure the best performance for your websites.
