CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means routine protection and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our VPS hosting. You'll get a fast, safe and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made through the registration process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to take care of the server as one very powerful account, or to set up various accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the extra software which is usually set up on it, you're able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully customize the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made 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 the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
