CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the numerous Linux releases available, but what differentiates it from all the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and risk-free OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have some questions, you'll be able to rapidly discover the info which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. 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, as you will not need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to use the server for your personal web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also order a VPS without 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 set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, as this Operating System is on the list of options that you can pick during the registration process. Since the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're controlling one very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have independent accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to guarantee the best performance for your web sites.
