CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you're able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. This means frequent safety and stability updates which provides a dependable software environment for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you obtain one of our VPS server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web 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, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you will be able to order the server with no Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable website hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
plans which we provide, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your machine. Since it's very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we offer - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for any kind of purpose - to host all of your personal Internet sites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each domain
or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also get a server devoid of Control Panel and set up any custom software that you need, instead 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 signup process or at any later time, we'll perform regular CentOS updates besides the other things which are part of the package.
