CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent safety and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

When you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You are able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable hosting service for all of your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you'd like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to take care of the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
