CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to 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, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that is is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, which means that you will be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you make a variety of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can 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.
