CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
When you acquire one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you intend to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order your server without any 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 have a secure and reliable hosting service for all of your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we offer, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you are able to pick on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, which means that you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you set up a variety of hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
