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 reliable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all 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'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System options offered by our VPS servers. You will get a fast, safe and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the registration process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the whole server as one very powerful account, or to make various accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no additional software that's usually set up on it, you are able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
