CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you experience any problem or have any questions, you'll be able to quickly discover the data that you need. CentOS is regarded as among the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it is very stable and protected, that makes it very reliable even when you host private info. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify each and every part of it and personalize 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 will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and manage. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to get the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS supports numerous web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server as if you're managing a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
