CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means frequent protection and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
When you get one of our virtual private server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You are able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you intend to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with 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'll be able to order your server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to acquire one of the dedicated server packages which we offer, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 website hosting Control Panels that we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Thus, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal sites in a single account, to make separate Control Panels for each domain or even to resell website hosting packages to other people. You may also buy a server without a Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle during the sign-up process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
