CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You're able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options which you will be able to select on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we provide, which means that you're able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to set up a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
