CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server with no Control Panel and install 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. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
