CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS hosting. You'll get a fast, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your sites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to create different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but without the further software that is usually installed on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't have to devote time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
