CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is available with every single virtual private server that we provide and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to set up and run, you can pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you'd like to use the server for your very own Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also buy a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to pick on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make numerous web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
