CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS hosting. You'll get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made through the registration process. You can also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to take care of the server as a single very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the further software which is usually installed on it, you can buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully modify the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to manage the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most secure software on your dedicated server.
