CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing 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 running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.

CentOS is one of several Operating System options offered by our Linux VPS packages
. You will get an efficient, safe and reliable machine with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the registration process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal websites and to take care of the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to others if, for instance, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the additional software which is usually set up on it, you will be able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
