CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is one of the Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS web hosting services. You'll get an efficient, secure and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the registration process. You may also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to take care of the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to make various accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you wish to start a hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet without the extra software that is usually set up on it, you are able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, because this OS is on the list of options that you can choose during the order process. As the software that you wish to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with numerous hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server like you're managing a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is secure and has the latest software all the time, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
