CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and work with. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you will 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 meets the specifications of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create an individual account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
