CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever 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 will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you are able to choose on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, while the other two Control Panels will enable you to make various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
