CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's much longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you're able to quickly get the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Because it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS 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're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire 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 you can install just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You're able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to create a number of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
