CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. This means ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you'll be able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make a variety of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
