CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating 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 total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you would like to set up and run. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the choice to order your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is on the list of options that you are able to choose during the order process. Since the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the latest software at all times, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your websites.
