CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating System choices offered by our VPS hosting. You'll get a fast, secure and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the signup process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to manage the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to generate multiple accounts and give access to others if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however devoid of the extra software that's usually set up on it, you can order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to completely 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 plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between various hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
