CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means routine security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
You will be able to select CentOS for your brand new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the opportunity to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and run. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the option to order your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to generate multiple 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 pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
