CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions in existence, but what distinguishes it from the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is considerably longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to rapidly get the info that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host private data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your very own websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web 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 sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
