CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any 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 will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means regular security and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS hosting plans. You'll get a quick, safe and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You may also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal sites and to maintain the server as a single very powerful account, or to make various accounts and give access to others if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no extra software that is usually installed on it, you'll be able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
