CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all of 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'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you would like to use the server for your personal web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make a variety of website hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also get a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, due to the fact that this OS is on the list of options which you're able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you want to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're managing one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is protected and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the best performance for your sites.
