CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that 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's 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 need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary security and stability updates which provides a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server through the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the option to purchase the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet without the additional software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can select on our order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you create numerous web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
