CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

When you purchase one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order your server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a safe and reliable hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we offer with all of our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various website hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to take care of the whole server like just a single account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an individual account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also supply regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most protected software on your dedicated server.
