CentOS is amongst the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems available on the market. It's preferred by a large number of website hosting service providers, because it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Also, you will be able to install and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux equipment. When you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to change any part of the Operating System according to your specifications. The fact that CentOS is absolutely free does mean that you'll have to pay only for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A large group of developers and users is behind CentOS, and in case you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you can discover a solution quickly. An important advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server during the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and run. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and 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 and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to buy the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the entire server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an independent account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
