CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It is employed by a lot of hosting suppliers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, 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's also very fast and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you will be able to set up and run any kind of web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to modify any part of the Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll need to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, which will decrease your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you'll be able to find a solution in no time. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for a minimum of 10 years, so that you'll always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
