CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose 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 need 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 with no Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You're able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you'll be able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, so you are able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate a number of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can choose 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
