CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux releases available, however what differentiates it from the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with another OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to quickly find the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive data. Considering 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, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to install and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up only the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the whole server like just a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't 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 offer regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
