CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you'd like to install and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be all set shortly after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to use the server for your personal web sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to create a variety of hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you may also obtain a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You're able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can choose on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to set up numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
