CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means regular safety and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

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

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
