CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize 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 won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out 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. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to install and run, you'll be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your personal web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to choose 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 applications that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make an independent account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
