CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be 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 have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you get one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you want to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you're able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to get one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
