CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering 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 overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any other OS. This means regular protection and stability updates that provides a great software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
If you get one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the registration page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you wish to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll 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. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you're able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a secure and reliable website hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, because this OS is one of the options which you'll be able to pick through the registration process. Since the software that you want to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different hosting Control Panels, and if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to control the server as if you're controlling one very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates every week and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most recent software all the time, in order to ensure the best possible performance for your websites.
