CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by various hosting service providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, 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. Also, you can install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you can adjust any part of your Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free means that you will have to pay only for your server, and not for any license fees, which will cut down your overall expenses. A vast team of developers and users stands behind CentOS, and if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you're simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions offered by our VPS servers
. You will get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the whole server as one very powerful account, or to set up multiple accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the additional software which is usually set up on it, you'll be able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server
plans that we offer, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain
or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
