CentOS is among the most sought after Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by many hosting suppliers, since it's very stable, secure and reliable, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it's an open-source OS. CentOS is used for production servers, as it's also really quick and takes minimal system resources. In addition, you are able to set up and run any kind of web app, provided that it can function on a Linux machine. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you'll be able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free does mean that you'll need to pay for your server, and not for any kind of license fees, that will lower your overall expenses. A huge community of developers and users stands behind CentOS, so if you ever have any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to discover a solution in no time. A significant advantage of the OS is also the fact that every single version is officially supported and updated for at least ten years, so that you'll always have a secure and reliable software environment.

We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the chance to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as one single account.
