CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in whatever 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 license fees, meaning that the total price that you will 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 unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to set up and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like to use the server for your websites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to create a number of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you'd like to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you are able to control the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most secure software on the dedicated server.
