CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, however what distinguishes it from the rest is its long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a stable and risk-free Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that is much longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly get the details that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even when you host private information. Since it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, 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 sort.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
