CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable 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 get the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS. This means regular protection and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You can select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to pick the one that is more suitable for the apps that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to get the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made 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 our 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 included in the package.
