CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases in existence, however what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a stable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive data. Since it is open-source, you can 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, because you will not need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll 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're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate multiple web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you are able to pick on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to create a number of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
