CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize 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 won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
When you order one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You'll be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable website hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server packages. During the registration process, you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the applications that you want to set up. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from several hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to control the whole server like just a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make an individual account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
