CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's used by many website hosting service providers, because it is 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, as it is also really quick and takes negligible system resources. Furthermore, you're able to install and run any kind of web app, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to update any part of your Operating System in accordance with your needs. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you'll have to pay just for your server, but not for any kind of license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single release is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so you will always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our VPS hosting service. You'll get a fast, secure and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the server as a very powerful account, or to create a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no extra software which is usually set up on it, you can get a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to entirely customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make an individual account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
