CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux distributions available, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you can quickly find the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even when you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you will be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a secure and reliable web hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to control the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can create a separate account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
