CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. 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 available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine security and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to install and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software that you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, since this Operating System is one of the options that you'll be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you want to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to control the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have individual accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software all the time, to ensure the best performance for your web sites.
