CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means frequent safety and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
When you obtain one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you would like to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you're able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server
plans. Throughout the signup process, you can pick 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 specifications of the apps that you'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the whole server like a single account irrespective of the number of domain names
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to make a different account for each domain name, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote effort and time downloading and setting up the latest and most secure software on the dedicated server.
