CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can 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 will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other OS. This means routine safety and stability updates that provides a great software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you acquire one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You can choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, depending on the software that you want to install later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the 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 us, you will enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to pick through the order process. As the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server like you're controlling a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have individual accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your web sites.
