CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in any 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 won't need 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 cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

You'll be able to pick CentOS for your brand new virtual private server during the registration process. We provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the opportunity to pick the one which is more suitable for the apps that you would like to install and work with. CentOS supports multiple hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, depending on what you intend to do - to make a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and control the server as a single account. You'll also have the choice to obtain the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, yet with no additional software which is provided with the Control Panels. In this way, you will be able to install web or database servers that are different from the default ones which we offer.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to get CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you're able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
