CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program 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 have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and manage. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to buy your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
