CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS. You will get a quick, well-protected and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to manage the entire server as one very powerful account, or to create different accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you'll be able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

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