CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

If you order one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You are able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order your server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which 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 signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
