CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the many Linux distributions available, but what differentiates it from the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is considerably longer than with another OS available on the market. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, so if you experience any problem or have some questions, you can instantly get the data which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even when you host sensitive information. Considering that it is open-source, you're able to modify every part of it and customize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, since you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you'd like to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your personal web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can get a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
