CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases available, yet what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is a lot longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you can rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host sensitive data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you will be able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with every single VPS server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to use the server for your websites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate various website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install only the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
