CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases available, but what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, which is longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to quickly find the info that you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you would like to employ the server for your Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a number of hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to control the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
