CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering 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 will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our Linux VPS hosting packages. You'll get a fast, secure and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made through the sign-up process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the server as one very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the further software that's usually set up on it, you'll be able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully customize the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we offer, you are able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host all your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the package.
