CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS web hosting services
. You will get a fast, risk-free and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the registration process. You'll also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to manage the server as a single very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no additional software which is usually installed on it, you're able to purchase a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with all our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the registration process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you intend to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from several web hosting Control Panels, based on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can take care of the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
