CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. 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 changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent safety and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

When you buy one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You're able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order your server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you want to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between a couple of hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate a different account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
