CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Web Hosting

CentOS is available with each and every virtual private server that we provide and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you'd like to set up and run, you are able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be installed and operating shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you wish to use the server for your own web sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also purchase a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install only the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans which we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the package.
