CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the 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 overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means regular safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, and 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 name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the option to acquire the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to make a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select 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 offer weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
