CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions available, yet what differentiates it from all of the others is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in the event you experience any problem or have some questions, you will be able to quickly find the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Because it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and manage. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You'll also have the option to acquire the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you wish to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to manage the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
