CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and risk-free 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 code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you acquire one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order your server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can acquire a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
