CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall 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 working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish 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 control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to choose between 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 would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to control the whole server like a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
