CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any 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 kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and work with. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the option to order your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the bundle.
