CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize 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 kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to select the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports multiple website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the option to acquire your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and install 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. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
