CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you order one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You're able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you will be able to order your server without 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 will enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all of your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, because this Operating System is one of the options that you're able to select through the registration process. Since the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports numerous web hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're managing one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have independent accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades every week and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your sites.
