CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the 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'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You can select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and work with. CentOS supports various hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to acquire your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a different account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
