CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means 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 some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each domain name hosted on the server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the choice to buy the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, however with no additional software that comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you are able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You can acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you're able to choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to set up numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
