CentOS is amongst the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems out there. It's used by a number of website hosting providers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. What's more, you are able to install and run any web application, as long as it can operate on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you can change any part of your Operating System in accordance with your requirements. The fact that CentOS is free also means that you will have to pay just for your server, and not for any license fees, that will minimize your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever experience any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you will be able to discover a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to set up and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your very own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
