CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is offered with every single virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to employ the server for your personal Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up only the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, because this OS is on the list of options which you'll be able to select through the registration process. As the software that you intend to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your web sites.
