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

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains at the same time and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to order the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
