CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary protection and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating System options provided by our VPS hosting services. You will get a quick, well-protected and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made during the signup process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal websites and to maintain the entire server as a very powerful account, or to generate many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no further software which is usually installed on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you completely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to control the entire server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
