CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize 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 have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server during the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the chance to select the one which is more suitable for the apps that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports a number of web hosting Control Panels, and you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to create a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the entire server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to buy the VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you'll be able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to make multiple web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you can 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
