CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular security and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS services. You will get a quick, secure and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to control the entire server as a very powerful account, or to set up various accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no further software which is usually installed on it, you are able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This allows you to completely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you're able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal websites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also acquire a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place 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 regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
