CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the 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'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to install and run, you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be up and running soon after that. CentOS supports all of the three hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your very own websites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate various web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also order a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so that you can set up just the software that you need for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server packages which we supply, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each and every domain name or even to resell web hosting packages to other people. You can also obtain a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things which are included in the bundle.
