CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need 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 another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine security and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we supply and you will be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you'd like to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you'd like to use the server for your own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without any Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up just the software that you need for your apps.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to make numerous hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick 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.
