CentOS is amongst the most widely used Linux-based server Operating Systems nowadays. It is used by a large number of hosting providers, since it is very stable, reliable and secure, not to mention that it is freely customizable, since it is an open-source Operating System. CentOS is used for production servers, for the reason that it's also really quick and takes negligible resources. On top of that, you can install and run any web app, as long as it can run on a Linux computer system. If you use a CentOS-powered server, you will be able to adjust any part of the Operating System according to your preferences. The fact that CentOS is free of charge means that you will have to pay only for your server, but not for any license fees, that will reduce your overall expenses. A huge team of developers and users is behind CentOS, so in case you ever encounter any problems, or you are simply not sure how to perform a certain task, you will be able to find a solution right away. An important benefit of the OS is also the fact that each release is officially supported and updated for a minimum of ten years, which means that you will always have a secure and dependable software environment.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System solutions offered by our VPS servers

You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to make multiple accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a website hosting reseller business.
