CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions out there, however what distinguishes it from all the rest is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is considerably longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have any questions, you will be able to rapidly get the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even if you host sensitive information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you can modify any 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, since you will not have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS

If you purchase one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable website hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
