It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to 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 discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means frequent security and stability updates which provides a stable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.

CentOS in VPS

CentOS is one of the Operating System options provided by our Linux VPS. You'll get a quick, well-protected and dependable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the selection that you've made during the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own sites and to maintain the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to create various accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however devoid of the additional software that is usually installed on it, you can get a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.

CentOS in Dedicated Hosting

CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. During the registration process, you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the applications that you intend to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to pick from a couple of hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you'll be able to control the whole server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domains that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you are able to generate a different account for each domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not choose any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
