CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means routine security and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
