CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities provided by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You will get an efficient, risk-free and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to manage the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to make various accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but without the extra software that's usually set up on it, you will be able to order a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you can pick during the registration process. Since 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 website hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is protected and has the latest software all the time, so as to guarantee the best possible performance for your web sites.
