CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS web hosting services. You'll get an efficient, safe and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your own websites and to manage the server as one very powerful account, or to set up many different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no further software that is usually installed on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
