CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other OS. This means regular safety and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is available with every single VPS server that we provide and you can select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three website hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your very own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to set up many web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can install just the software which you want for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
