CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the signup process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the option to select the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to set up and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as one single account. You will also have the option to buy the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can pick on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to generate a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
