CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

When you buy one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You will be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order your server with no Control Panel and you'll obtain 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 can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
