CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we supply and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to set up and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create multiple website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get 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 set up just the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you will be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can obtain a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
