CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any 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 won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. This means routine security and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our Linux VPS servers. You will get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the signup process. You can also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to maintain the entire server as one very powerful account, or to make different accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you want to start a hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no extra software that is usually set up on it, you can buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to entirely modify the software environment for your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, because this OS is one of the options that you can choose during the order process. As the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server as if you're managing a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to have individual accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the latest software all the time, so as to guarantee the optimum performance for your web sites.
