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 dependable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

If you order one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the whole server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
