CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable 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 program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you buy one of our VPS server packages, you'll 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 release of CentOS, depending on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different 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, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, as this Operating System is on the list of options which you will be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you want to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports various web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server as if you're managing a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the latest software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
