CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. This means routine protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options which you are able to pick on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels that we offer, therefore you are able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to generate a number of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without 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.
