CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is 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 running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you get one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you wish to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server packages that we provide, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that 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 throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
