CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program 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 total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine security and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you get one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like 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, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable website hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you can select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You may also obtain a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
