CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, but what distinguishes it from the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is much longer than with another OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you are able to promptly find the data that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host private data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon 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 very own websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. 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 nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
