CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux releases available, yet what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a stable and protected Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with almost every other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have any questions, you can instantly find the info that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, since it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host private information. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to set up and run, you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to employ the server for your own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you're able to choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to create a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
