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 one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you would like to install and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your web sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make numerous website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to manage the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive 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 included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on the dedicated server.
