CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular security and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

If you buy one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you can use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal Internet sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
