CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free 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 modifying the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server during the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for every single domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and control the server as a single account. You will also have the option to acquire your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you can set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an individual account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
