CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is 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 need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine protection and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS web hosting services. You will get a quick, secure and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made during the registration process. You will also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal websites and to take care of the whole server as one very powerful account, or to create different accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet with no extra software that is usually set up on it, you'll be able to obtain a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to completely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you're able to pick during the order process. As the software that you need to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server as if you're managing a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the latest software all the time, to ensure the optimum performance for your websites.
