CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine security and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our VPS web hosting. You will get a quick, well-protected and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to manage the server as a single very powerful account, or to generate many different accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but without the extra software that is usually installed on it, you're able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you completely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you can choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you're able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
