CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever 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 kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means regular security and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS hosting services. You will get a quick, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the sign-up process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own websites and to take care of the entire server as one very powerful account, or to set up different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you want to start a hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no further software which is usually installed on it, you can purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the apps that you wish to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from various website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to take care of the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create 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'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most current and most protected software on the dedicated server.
