CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you acquire one of our VPS server
packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You're able to decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order the server without Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to order one of the dedicated server
packages that we offer, you will be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for any purpose - to host your personal sites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain name
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You can also purchase a server devoid of Control Panel and install any custom software that you need, instead of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things that are part of the bundle.
