CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you might have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that's is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
If you get one of our virtual private server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the sign-up page. You're able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you want to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. When you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you will 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 enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll be able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we provide, so you can pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will help you set up multiple website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
