CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems on the market. It's employed by various web hosting providers, as it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very quick and takes minimal resources. What's more, you're able to install and run any web application, as long as it can function on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you'll have to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, which will lower your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever experience any problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a particular task, you can discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you will always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server through the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to select the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you want to install and manage. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server with no Control Panel and install 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 during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
