CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all 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 total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you buy one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you will be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable website hosting service for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, as this Operating System is on the list of options that you are able to choose through the order process. Since the software that you need to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS is compatible with a number of website hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, to guarantee the best performance for your web sites.
