CentOS is amongst the most preferred Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's employed by many website hosting service providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you can set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can update any part of your Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will need to pay for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will minimize your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to find a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You will be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
