CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, 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 ten years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating System possibilities provided by our Linux VPS hosting. You'll get an efficient, risk-free and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own websites and to take care of the whole server as a very powerful account, or to set up various accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no further software that's usually set up on it, you can acquire a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you can choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
