CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying 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, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates that provides a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the option to obtain the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the entire server like just a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a different account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll receive your 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 installing the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
