CentOS is among the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is used by a lot of web hosting providers, as it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. On top of that, you are able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can operate on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to change any part of the Operating System according to your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free means that you'll need to pay just for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution very quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to install and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you 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 generate multiple website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you are able to choose on our order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer, so that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you create a variety of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
