CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing 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 total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates that will provide a stable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you're able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful website hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels enable you to create a variety of website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
