CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

When you order one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You can choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can get a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place 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 during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
