CentOS VPS Hosting

The CentOS (Community ENTerprise Operating System) Linux distribution is perfectly suited for both 32-bit and 64-bit VPS hosting. CentOS VPS Hosting has native support for both Xen and KVM virtualization, making it an ideal choice when selecting a VPS hosting operating system.

CentOS VPS Hosting benefits from the optimization of the operating system for functionality in a VPS hosting environment. CentOS is the best freely available alternative to RHEL for VPS hosting.

Package management in a CentOS VPS hosting environment makes use of the easy and powerful YUM package manager.

What are the benefits of a CentOS VPS?

DotBlock has 5 different versions of CentOS available in our virtual private server hosting environment. A CentOS VPS is a great intermediate step between shared and dedicated hosting as it allows you to scale up your available resources to align with your growing needs. With full root access to your CentOS VPS, you can conveniently manage your accounts, server configurations, and software installations all from your DotBlock control panel.

Because your CentOS VPS system is partitioned, your account will be completely secure and unaffected by other users. This partitioning ensures that your server will have its own dedicated resources (RAM, CPU) which will remain unaffected by other users on the system.
