CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you obtain one of our virtual private server plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the registration page. You will be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose 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 another purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the server without 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 enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for all your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems that we provide with all of our dedicated server packages. During the signup process, you'll be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the requirements of the apps that you want to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from various hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can manage the entire server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an individual account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you do not pick any Control Panel, you will receive the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you won't need to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most secure software on the dedicated server.
