CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize 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 kind of license fees, which means 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 another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to 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 your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to order your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you'll be able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to take care of the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an independent account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
