CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine security and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you want to employ the server for your very own websites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, as this Operating System is one of the options that you can select during the order process. Since the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have separate accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and has the latest software at all times, so as to guarantee the best performance for your sites.
