It's one of the countless Linux releases out there, however what differentiates it from the rest is its long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a reliable and protected Operating System. Each CentOS version that is released is supported for a decade, that is a lot longer than with almost every other OS in existence. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore in case you encounter any problem or have some questions, you'll be able to instantly find the info which you need. CentOS is regarded as one of the best server Operating Systems, due to the fact that it's very stable and secure, which makes it very reliable even if you host confidential information. Due to the fact that it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your needs, not to mention that the overall cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, because you will not have to pay license fees of any sort.

CentOS in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the sign-up process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one that will be more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and run. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domain names together and control the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
