CentOS is one of the preferred Operating Systems for hosting servers. It's one of the countless Linux distributions out there, but what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's longer than with any other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you will be able to quickly find the data that you need. CentOS is widely known as one of the best server Operating Systems, since it is very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host private data. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you will be able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the total 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 will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to get your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we offer.
