CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine security and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server through the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the applications that you'd like to set up and manage. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to obtain the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you're able to pick during the registration process. Since the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're managing a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the best performance for your web sites.
