CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most reliable and secure 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 updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't 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 more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply 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. What this means is routine security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you will be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. During the sign-up process, you can pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the whole server like just a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to create a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't select any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't have to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
