CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be 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 won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server during the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, in order to give you the chance to pick the one that is more suitable for the applications that you would like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for each domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and control the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to order the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we provide.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can get CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you will be able to select on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select 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, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
