CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine security and stability updates that provides a great software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our VPS hosting service. You will get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made through the registration process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to control the server as a single very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. If you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but devoid of the further software that is usually set up on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to completely customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up multiple hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you are able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
