CentOS is one of the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems to choose from. It's used by many web hosting providers, since it is very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal system resources. On top of that, you can install and run any kind of web application, as long as it can run on a Linux machine. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to edit any part of the Operating System according to your needs. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free also means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any sort of license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, therefore in case you ever have any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a particular task, you can find a solution quickly. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for no less than ten years, so that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you'll be able to choose 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 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate many website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also get 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 install just the software that you need for your applications.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you can select through the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the latest software at all times, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
