CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It is employed by countless web hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, 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 really quick and takes negligible system resources. On top of that, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever experience any problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution very quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, which means that you will always have a safe and dependable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

If you order one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead 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 the other things which are part of the bundle.
