CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, however what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is considerably longer than with any other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you can rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host confidential data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify any 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, since you won't need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to use the server for your own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a variety of web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install just the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to 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 want to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not select 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 included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
