CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you order one of our VPS server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You will be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You can obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will be able to choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, therefore you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you're able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
