CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't 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 an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire 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 hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, which means that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create numerous web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
