CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most dependable and risk-free 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 updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total 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 another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we provide and you will be able to select it during the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to install and run, you will be able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you would like to employ the server for your personal Internet sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a number of website hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you're able to choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we supply, so that you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to make numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
