CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by countless website hosting service providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes negligible resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you will have to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A vast community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. 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 will always have a secure and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to use the server for your own sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate multiple web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to create a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
