CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's used by a number of web hosting providers, since it is 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, as it's also very fast and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you are able to install and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux device. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you buy one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You're able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a secure and reliable hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
