CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System options offered by our VPS servers. You'll get a fast, well-protected and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to take care of the server as a very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software that's usually set up on it, you can order a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you will be able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have different accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software all the time, to ensure the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
