CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular security and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to purchase the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you wish to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a separate account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
