CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is among the Operating System choices offered by our Linux VPS services. You'll get a quick, well-protected and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to take care of the whole server as one very powerful account, or to make many different accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no further software which is usually set up on it, you are able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you're able to choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, therefore you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
