CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates that provides a stable 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 during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, so as to give you the opportunity to choose the one which is more suitable for the applications that you would like to install and manage. CentOS supports a variety of web hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you'd like to do - to create a separate account for each and every domain name hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all of your domains together and control the whole server as one single account. You will also have the option to get the VPS with no Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software which comes with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you are able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to set up a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you are able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
