CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases out there, however what differentiates it from all of the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive information. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to use the server for your very own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
