CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize 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 won't 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 lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine protection and stability updates which provides a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

CentOS is accessible with each and every VPS server that we offer and you'll be able to select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software which you need to set up and run, you will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels that we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you want to use the server for your web sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make a variety of web hosting accounts and eventually resell them to other people. Of course, you can also get a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so you can install only the software which you want for your applications.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

You're able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you're able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, which means that you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to set up various web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
