CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based 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 reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can buy a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the package.
