CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can customize it in any 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 won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.

CentOS in Dedicated Servers

When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server plans that we provide, you are able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you can use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain name or even to resell hosting packages to other people. Also, you can buy a server without a Control Panel and install any custom software which you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the bundle.
