CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your personal sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a variety of hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also purchase a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.

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 from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you would like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to manage the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most protected software on the dedicated server.
