CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means 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 running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find 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 is is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you obtain one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server with no Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you'd like to install. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you're able to control the entire server like just a single account regardless of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an independent account for each and every domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick 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 offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
