CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable 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 changing 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 overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means routine security and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS hosting. You will get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to create a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet with no further software which is usually set up on it, you're able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on our order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to create numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
