CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's preferred by lots of hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you're able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can function on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can edit any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server
throughout the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to make a separate account for each domain
hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to buy the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all of our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the signup process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a different account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
