CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need 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 cheaper than the price for a server running 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 kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine security and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you can select on our order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you generate various hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
