CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any 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 overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to 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 discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we supply and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your own Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of web hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also acquire a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you will be able to choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to set up various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup without 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.
