CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is among the Operating System solutions offered by our Linux VPS packages. You will get a quick, well-protected and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the registration process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to set up a number of accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the additional software which is usually set up on it, you will be able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to completely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we provide with our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the whole server like just a single account regardless of the number of domain names which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
