CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying 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, meaning that the overall price that you'll have 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 stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new VPS server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to obtain your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
