CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need 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 distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the option to pick the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you want to set up and work with. CentOS supports multiple web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all of your domain names at the same time and manage the whole server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to get your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to set up web or database servers which are different from the default ones which we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you're able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, which means that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to make a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
