CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, but what differentiates it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and secure Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, 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 case you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you will be able to quickly get the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential data. Because it is open-source, you'll be able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to use the server for your own web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate many web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also buy a VPS with no 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 which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this OS is one of the options which you can choose through the registration process. As the software that you would like to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have individual accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most recent software all the time, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
