CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have 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 much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you purchase one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can make a separate account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
