CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You can pick CentOS for your new virtual private server during the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to purchase your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
