CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have 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 stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates that provides a great software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you order one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you want to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you're able to order the server with no Control Panel and you will acquire 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 your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several website hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates as part of our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
