CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux releases available, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a dependable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's a lot longer than with any other OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you can quickly get the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server through the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one that is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to set up and run. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the server as one single account. You'll also have the option to order your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, because this OS is one of the options that you can select through the order process. As the software that you intend to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server as if you're managing one very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have distinct accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the best performance for your sites.
