CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever 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 won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have 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 other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS web hosting plans. You will get a quick, safe and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made during the registration process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to maintain the entire server as a very powerful account, or to create various accounts and give access to others if, for example, you wish to start a hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no further software that is usually set up on it, you can purchase a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, because this OS is one of the options which you're able to pick during the registration process. As the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with different hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server as if you're managing one large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software all the time, so as to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
