CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known 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 any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS servers. You'll get a quick, secure and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made through the signup process. You may also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to maintain the whole server as a very powerful account, or to set up many different accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you are able to order a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
