CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them.

What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions provided by our VPS. You will get a quick, risk-free and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal sites and to take care of the entire server as a very powerful account, or to generate many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a web hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however with no additional software that's usually set up on it, you are able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the signup process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you intend to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose from several website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to take care of the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate a separate account for each domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you don't pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also supply regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not have to invest time and effort downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
