CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you buy one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose 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. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable website hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
