CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases out there, but what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have any questions, you're able to rapidly get the information which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host private data. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to pick the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a different account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
