CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's employed by a number of web hosting providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, since it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. What's more, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you're able to change any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free of charge also means that you will have to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large community of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore if you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and run. CentOS supports different 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 domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the option to purchase the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to create multiple hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
