CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can pick CentOS for your new VPS server during the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to pick the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the option to obtain the VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you wish to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
