CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You are able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order your server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for all your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you would like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from various web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the entire server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't 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 weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
