CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in the event you encounter any kind of problem or have some questions, you'll be able to instantly find the details which you need. CentOS is widely known as among the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it really reliable even if you host sensitive info. Since it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and customize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to pick the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to acquire the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You are able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you can choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you are able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
