CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases available, but what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that's considerably longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so if you encounter any problem or have some questions, you're able to promptly find the details that you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you are able to modify any 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, since you will not have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you are 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 of the three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your personal websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to generate many hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you're able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer, so that you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
