CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and protected 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 changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You can select CentOS for your brand new VPS server through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the option to select the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you want to install and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to order your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel.
