CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS. This means routine security and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You can pick CentOS for your new virtual private server during the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the chance to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports various 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 and every domain hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names together and control the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to acquire your VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.
