CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. 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 updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web 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, to give you the opportunity to select the one which will be more suitable for the apps that you'd like to install and work with. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you would like to do - to make a separate account for each domain 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 control the whole server as a single account. You will also have the option to purchase your VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, however without the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you'll be able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we provide.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with all our dedicated server plans. During the signup process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you will be able to manage the entire server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an independent account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
