CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can select CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to choose the one that is more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to get the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we provide, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps 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 will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the package.
