CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, and 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 and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the server as one single account. You will also have the option to get your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
