CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever 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 running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

You can select CentOS for your new virtual private server through the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions, to give you the option to select the one that is more suitable for the applications that you intend to install and work with. CentOS supports a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you wish to do - to make a separate account for each domain hosted on the server and even to start your very own reseller business, or to host all your domain names at the same time and manage the server as a single account. You will also have the choice to buy the VPS without any Control Panel if you need a machine with CentOS, yet devoid of the extra software which is provided with the Control Panels. This way, you're able to install web or database servers which are different from the default ones that we supply.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host your personal websites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software which 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 throughout the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
