CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means regular security and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you buy one of our VPS server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server
plans which we offer, you will be able to pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you're able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host your personal sites in just a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each domain
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. Also, you can purchase a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the sign-up process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are part of the bundle.
