CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you obtain one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You will be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all of your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to select on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we supply, therefore you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate multiple website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
