CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order your server with no 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 protected and reliable hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
