CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, yet what distinguishes it from the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that's considerably longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you can quickly find the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you can modify each and every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to order the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to take care of the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an individual account for each 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 the server with CentOS only, since 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 need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
