CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever 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 will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine security and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating System solutions offered by our Linux VPS hosting. You will get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to generate various accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but without the further software that is usually installed on it, you will be able to purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server plans. Throughout the sign-up process, you can 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 apps that you wish to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the server like an individual account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to make a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
