CentOS is one of the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's employed by a large number of hosting suppliers, since it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it can be customized freely, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to modify any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to discover a solution in no time. 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 Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to set up and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your very own websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make a number of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
