CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any 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 license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is among the Operating System solutions provided by our Linux VPS service. You will get an efficient, safe and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. 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 manage the whole server as one very powerful account, or to set up many different accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet without the additional software that's usually installed on it, you'll be able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to entirely modify the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you can 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 hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that 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 signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
