CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is preferred by a number of website hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very quick and takes negligible system resources. In addition, you can set up and run any web app, provided that it can function on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, that will decrease your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can find a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to install and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also order 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 install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, as this OS is one of the options that you are able to select through the registration process. As the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server like you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software all the time, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your websites.
