CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering 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, which means 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 working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you get one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. Unlike 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, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your 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 our company, you will enjoy a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, since this OS is on the list of options that you're able to choose through the registration process. Since the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server like you're managing a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to have independent accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the latest software at all times, to guarantee the best possible performance for your web sites.
