CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine security and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is among the Operating System options offered by our VPS servers. You will get a fast, well-protected and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the registration process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to maintain the server as one very powerful account, or to set up multiple accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no extra software that is usually installed on it, you can purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you can select through the order process. Since the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a number of web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're controlling a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your web sites.
