CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You can pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you want to install and run. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish 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 domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, since this Operating System is on the list of options which you will be able to choose during the registration process. Since the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with various hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server like you're controlling one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software all the time, to ensure the best possible performance for your Internet sites.
