CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need 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 cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to install and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to employ the server for your very own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up a number of web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install just the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an independent 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 get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
