CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is 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 more affordable than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you get one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you can order the server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire 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 all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we offer, since this OS is one of the options that you can choose through the order process. As the software that you intend to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have different accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is protected and has the latest software at all times, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your web sites.
