CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You can pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the chance to pick the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on the server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to obtain your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to select on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, therefore you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you set up multiple web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
