CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any 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 need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is offered with each and every virtual private server that we supply and you'll be able to select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Determined by the software which you need to set up and run, you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be all set soon after that. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you would like to use the server for your sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up numerous website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can set up just the software that you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

When you decide to order one of the dedicated server packages that we supply, you're able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. As it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 website hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all your personal websites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. Also, you can get a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
