CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System choices provided by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You'll get an efficient, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to control the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to create various accounts and give access to others if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no additional software that's usually installed on it, you'll be able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to entirely customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You may also purchase a server with no Control Panel and install 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 the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
