CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is well known as being 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 changing the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates which provides a stable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the registration page. You can decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, 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 throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you want different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a secure and reliable website hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you decide to buy one of the dedicated server
packages that we supply, you are able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. In this way, you will be 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
or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You can also obtain a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the signup process or at any later time, we will perform regular CentOS updates besides all the other things that are included in the package.
