CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will 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 other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you purchase one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You're able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you can order the server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also purchase a server with no Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
