CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll 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 unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS hosting. You'll get a quick, secure and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the registration process. You'll also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own sites and to control the entire server as one very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however devoid of the extra software which is usually set up on it, you can acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, since this OS is one of the options that you can pick through the registration process. Since the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server as if you're controlling one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is safe and it has the most recent software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your websites.
