CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your personal sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to take care of the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
