It is one of the many Linux releases out there, however what distinguishes it from all the others is the long-term support, which guarantees that you'll always have a stable and safe Operating System. Every CentOS version that is released is supported for 10 years, that's a lot longer than with another OS out there. CentOS also has a much larger developer community than other distributions, therefore if you experience any kind of problem or have any questions, you'll be able to instantly get the information which you need. CentOS is considered to be one of the best server Operating Systems, as it is very stable and protected, which makes it very reliable even when you host confidential information. Since it is open-source, you're able to modify any part of it and personalize it according to your requirements, not to mention that the total cost for a CentOS-based server will be lower, as you will not need to pay license fees of any sort.
CentOS in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select CentOS for your new VPS server through the sign-up process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you wish to do - to create a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and manage the entire server as one single account. You will also have the option to get your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you're able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the apps that you intend to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the whole server like a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to create a different account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
