CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that provides a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
If you buy one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You will be able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you'll be able to order your server with no 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'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you can pick through the registration process. As the software that you would like to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're controlling one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates every week and will make sure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
