CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine security and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to pick the one which is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to install and manage. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to order the VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this OS is on the list of options that you're able to pick through the order process. As the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of web hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
