CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to get your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to pick on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make multiple hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
