CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you get one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You are able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you're able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, therefore you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to generate a variety of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
