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 dependable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our VPS. You will get a quick, safe and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your Internet sites and to manage the server as one very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but devoid of the additional software which is usually set up on it, you're able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you completely customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

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