CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is among the Operating System solutions offered by our VPS servers. You will get a quick, safe and dependable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made through the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to control the server as one very powerful account, or to make various accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but devoid of the further software that's usually installed on it, you are able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can choose on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to generate a variety of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
