CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall 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 working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that provides a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server matches the requirements of the applications that you'd like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from various website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to control the entire server like a single account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make a separate account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to devote time and effort downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
