CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even when you host confidential info. Because it is open-source, you're able to modify each and every 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, since you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you obtain one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a separate account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
