CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It is 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 need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, in order to give you the opportunity to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you want to install and manage. CentOS supports multiple website hosting Control Panels, so that you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, according to what you'd like to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains at the same time and manage the whole server as one single account. You'll also have the choice to purchase your VPS without Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software that is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you will be able to install web or database servers that are different from the standard ones that we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server plans that we offer, you'll be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell hosting packages to other people. You can also obtain a server with no Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
