CentOS is one of the most popular Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It's employed by many web hosting providers, because it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it is also very quick and takes minimal system resources. Furthermore, you will be able to set up and run any web application, as long as it can run on a Linux equipment. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you are able to customize any part of your Operating System in accordance with your specifications. The fact that CentOS is provided for free means that you'll need to pay just for your server, and not for any sort of license fees, which will reduce your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users is behind CentOS, so that if you ever encounter any kind of problems, or you are simply unsure how to perform a specific task, you can discover a solution very quickly. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that each and every release is officially supported and updated for no less than 10 years, which means that you'll always have a safe and reliable software environment.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you'd like to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a secure and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.
