CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating 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 cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You will be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you would like to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without any 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 will enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose between several hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the entire server like an individual account whatever the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
