CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions available, but what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is a lot longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you're able to promptly discover the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and secure, that makes it very reliable even when you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web 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, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order your server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the entire server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
