CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program 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, 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 another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. This means regular safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our Linux VPS web hosting services. You'll get a quick, well-protected and dependable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to manage the server as a very powerful account, or to make multiple accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you want to start a hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the extra software that is usually set up on it, you'll be able to acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to entirely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the bundle.
