CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're 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 have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all of your web applications 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 provide 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 intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the choice to obtain your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the bundle.
