CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the opportunity to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and manage the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to get your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
