CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS packages. You will get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You will also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to maintain the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to generate a number of accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but without the further software which is usually installed on it, you'll be able to order a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you fully modify the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the sign-up process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you wish to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can 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 create an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
