CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not 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 cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent safety and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

If you acquire one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you can order your server without Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you intend to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to choose from several hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you can manage the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most secure software on your dedicated server.
