CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer 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. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you would like to use the server for your own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the entire server like a single account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an individual account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
