CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is accessible with every single virtual private server that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you need to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This allows you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your Internet sites and to manage it as one large account, or if you want to be able to make multiple hosting accounts and resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom-made software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
