CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need 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 as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary security and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the chance to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and work with. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to manage the whole server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a different account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
