CentOS is among the most widespread Linux-based server Operating Systems today. It's used by lots of web hosting suppliers, because it's very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it is also very fast and takes minimal resources. In addition, you'll be able to set up and run any kind of web application, provided that it can operate on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to edit any part of the Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free does mean that you will have to pay for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A large team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever have any kind of problems, or you're simply unsure how to perform a certain task, you'll be able to discover a solution quickly. A significant benefit of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least 10 years, so that you will always have a secure and stable software environment.

CentOS in VPS

You can pick CentOS for your new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the chance to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to buy your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.
