CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server during the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to set up and manage. 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 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 of your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You'll also have the option to get your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
