CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It is 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 have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in VPS Servers

When you purchase one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You are able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll 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'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a safe and reliable web hosting service for all your web sites.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you're able to select through the order process. As the software that you would like to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can manage the server like you're controlling a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have separate accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels offer such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the best performance for your websites.
