CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a great software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you would like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order your server with no 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 will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
