CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's 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'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means ordinary protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to choose the one that is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and manage. CentOS supports a number of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to get your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but with no extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
