CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will have 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 unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent security and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System choices offered by our VPS web hosting services
. You will get a quick, safe and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the registration process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with the other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to control the whole server as a single very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you want to start a web hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, yet without the additional software that's usually installed on it, you're able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This will allow you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you decide to buy one of the dedicated server
packages that we provide, you'll be able to choose the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it's very light and quick, you will be able to utilize all the system resources for your website. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for any type of purpose - to host all your personal websites in a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain
or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You may also acquire a server with no Control Panel and set up any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. When you add our optional Managed Services bundle during the registration process or at any later time, we will perform weekly CentOS updates besides the other things which are included in the package.
