CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable 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 discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to employ the server for your very own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create numerous hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this OS is on the list of options which you'll be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the latest software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
