CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and secure 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 modifying the code of any of them. It's 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 much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the whole server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to get the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from various hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our own 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.
