CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as 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 changing the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with each and every VPS server that we provide and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating soon after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to use the server for your sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you may also order a VPS with no Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

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