CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Hosting

When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You can choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based 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 choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you want different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without any Control Panel and you'll obtain 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 web hosting service for your Internet sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you can pick during the order process. Since the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server like you're managing a single large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have separate accounts for the domain names which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your web sites.
