CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

If you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from various hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
