CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine security and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

If you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You will be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order your 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 our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to create a number of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
