CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the entire server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most protected software on the dedicated server.
