CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

If you get one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we supply, you're able to pick 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 the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also obtain a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are included in the package.
