CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, but what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have any questions, you can rapidly get the information which you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host private information. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one that is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this Operating System is on the list of options which you are able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you intend to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're managing a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your web sites.
