CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions available, however what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with almost every other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to rapidly discover the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Since it is open-source, you can modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you can 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'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like 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 a number of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without 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 set up just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you intend to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
