CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is among the Operating System choices provided by our VPS servers. You'll get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the signup process. You can also choose 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 would like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the entire server as a very powerful account, or to create a number of accounts and give access to others if, for example, you want to start a hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no extra software which is usually installed on it, you will be able to get a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to entirely customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you're able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. Also, you can purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made 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 will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
