CentOS is amongst the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's employed by many website hosting providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also very quick and takes negligible resources. In addition, you are able to set up and run any kind of web app, as long as it can run on a Linux device. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to update any part of your Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is free of charge does mean that you will need to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so you will always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports multiple website 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 and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the server as a single account. You will also have the option to purchase the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options that you'll be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you need to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server like you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software all the time, so as to ensure the best performance for your websites.
