CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions out there, but what distinguishes it from the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and protected OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any other OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can quickly discover the information that you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host private info. Considering that it is open-source, you'll be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server during the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
