CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server throughout the signup process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, to give you the option to select the one which will be more suitable for the applications that you wish to install and run. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you intend to do - to set up a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your own reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the entire server as one single account. You'll also have the option to buy your VPS without any Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you can install web or database servers which are different from the standard ones which we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you're able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to set up multiple web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you are able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
