CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the chance to pick the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to buy your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, since this OS is on the list of options that you will be able to pick during the registration process. Since the software that you want to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
