CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any 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 running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any 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 other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to pick the one that is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and run. CentOS supports multiple website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as one single account. You will also have the choice to get your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this OS is one of the options which you're able to choose through the order process. Since the software that you wish to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the best possible performance for your web sites.
