CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can select CentOS for your new VPS server throughout the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the chance to choose the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to set up and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to acquire your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra 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 which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, as this Operating System is on the list of options which you're able to pick through the order process. As the software that you need to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports numerous web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server like you're controlling a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have distinct accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most recent software all the time, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
