CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our Linux VPS hosting plans. You'll get a fast, risk-free and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made through the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to control the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to set up various accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet devoid of the further software that's usually set up on it, you will be able to acquire a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to completely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you're able to choose through the registration process. Since the software that you need to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with numerous web hosting Control Panels, which means that if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server like you're controlling a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have different accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the latest software at all times, so as to ensure the best performance for your sites.
