CentOS is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for hosting servers. It is one of the countless Linux releases in existence, but what differentiates it from all of the others is the long-term support, which ensures that you'll always have a reliable and secure OS. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's much longer than with another OS in existence. CentOS also has a much more numerous developer community than other distributions, so in case you encounter any problem or have any questions, you are able to instantly discover the details which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, because it's very stable and protected, that makes it really reliable even if you host private info. Since it is open-source, you are able to modify every part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you won't have to pay license fees of any type.

through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to choose the one which is more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name
hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the 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 without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.
