CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It is one of the many Linux distributions available, however what distinguishes it from the rest is the long-term support, which guarantees that you will always have a dependable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other OS available. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any problem or have some questions, you can promptly get the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and secure, which makes it really reliable even if you host confidential information. Since it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you order one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You're able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, since this OS is one of the options that you're able to select through the order process. Since the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of website hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're controlling one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
