CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions out there, yet what differentiates it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, that is a lot longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to quickly get the details which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you won't have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your personal sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, as this OS is on the list of options which you can pick during the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have independent accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
