CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any 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 another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server
throughout the registration process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the option to get the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you can easily install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this OS is one of the options which you will be able to select through the registration process. Since the software that you need to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports numerous website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server as if you're controlling one very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have independent accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your Internet sites.
