CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so 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 your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to get the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to set up web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, since this OS is on the list of options that you can select during the order process. As the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're managing one very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the latest software all the time, to guarantee the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
