CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's employed by lots of website hosting service providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also very quick and takes negligible system resources. Also, you're able to set up and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of the Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you'll have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a number of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS without any 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 you can install only the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
