CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's 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 need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You're able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different 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're able to order the server without 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 hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you'd like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to control the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create an independent account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
