CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems available. 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 any of them. It is 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 will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any question or problem you may have. What's more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, that is is longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is routine safety and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you are able to select on the order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we supply, so that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users who require a powerful hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to create various website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you're able to pick a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
