CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the numerous Linux distributions in existence, however what distinguishes it from all of the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is much longer than with any other OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so in the event you encounter any problem or have some questions, you will be able to rapidly discover the information that 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 data. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few 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 then your new VPS will be online shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up a number of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

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