CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to select CentOS for your new virtual private server through the signup process. We supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the opportunity to choose the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to set up and run. CentOS supports various website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you would like to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to obtain your VPS with no Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you are able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you're able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
