CentOS is one of the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's employed by a number of hosting service providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you're able to set up and run any web app, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of your Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you'll always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you are able to choose 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 supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate many website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you can 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 website. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
