CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means routine protection and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to get CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can choose on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you can select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you generate a variety of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to choose 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 includes weekly CentOS updates.
