Install terminator in CentOS 6.5 (64bit)

We installed CentOS 6.5 (64bit) using this ISO, which we downloaded from http://vault.centos.org/6.5/isos/x86_64/

Once we got the OS started, we executed yum update -y to update all installed packages that were older than the versions in the repositories.
After the update process was complete, we then tried to install terminator using yum.

Executing yum install -y terminator resulted in an error:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Setting up Install Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.us.leaseweb.net
* extras: mirror.us.leaseweb.net
* updates: mirror.us.leaseweb.net
No package terminator available.
Error: Nothing to do

To solve the problem we needed to install the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository using yum install -y epel-release.

After the installation was done, we executed yum install -y terminator once more and the installation of terminator succeeded.
