CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You'll be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the choice to buy the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to manage the server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
