CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any other OS. This means ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you would like to set up and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to employ the server for your web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make many website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also buy a VPS without any Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can set up only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you are able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, therefore you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
