CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded 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 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 have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

When you purchase one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will acquire 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 hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to select on the registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to create various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you are able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
