CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you want to set up and run. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, and 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 and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own 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 obtain your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you will be able to choose 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 apps that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can control the server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select 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 weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
