CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded 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 any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have 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 stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is regular protection and stability updates which provides a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels which we supply, so you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to create a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you are able to pick a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
