CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and safe 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 have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to choose the one that is more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and run. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to order the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, because this Operating System is on the list of options that you'll be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is safe and has the latest software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your websites.
