It is used by countless web hosting service providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, because it is an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, because it's also very fast and takes negligible resources.

When you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to modify any part of the Operating System according to your specifications.

CentOS in VPS Servers
You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server
through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, and 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
hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the choice to buy the 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 will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server
packages. During the registration process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to take care of the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
