CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for website hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions in existence, however what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you will always have a reliable and protected OS. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with another OS on the market. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you experience any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to instantly find the information that you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host private data. Considering that it is open-source, you can modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't need to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you purchase one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You are able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this Operating System is on the list of options that you are able to pick through the order process. Since the software that you would like to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to ensure the best performance for your Internet sites.
