CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server during the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the whole server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, because this Operating System is one of the options which you are able to select through the registration process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're controlling one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have individual accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software all the time, to ensure the best possible performance for your web sites.
