CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as 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 whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any other operating system. This means routine security and stability updates that will provide a great software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You will be able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you will get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a protected and reliable hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you will be able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to make various website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you'll be able to choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
