CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of 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 working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out 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 have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which will provide a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities provided by our VPS hosting. You'll get a quick, risk-free and dependable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with your VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to manage the server as a very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and give access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no further software that is usually set up on it, you will be able to acquire a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to completely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you decide to purchase one of the dedicated server packages that we offer, you'll be able to select the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Since it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the resources for your website. CentOS supports all of the 3 hosting Control Panels which we provide - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you will be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also buy a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the bundle.
