CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, however what differentiates it from all the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to rapidly discover the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host private data. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to order your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If 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 will be able to pick during the registration process. As the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, to guarantee the best performance for your sites.
