CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing 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 making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer 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 longer than with any other OS. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for 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 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, determined by the software that you wish to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website 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, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you can choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from several web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the server like a single account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose 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 offer you weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
