CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities offered by our VPS web hosting services
. You will get a quick, safe and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your own sites and to manage the whole server as a very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and give access to others if, for example, you wish to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no additional software which is usually set up on it, you are able to order a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options which you will be able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to create a variety of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
