CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the total 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 another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you want to install and run. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, due to the fact that this OS is on the list of options that you're able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you intend to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have distinct accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
