CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any license fees, which means that the total 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 stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary protection and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
If you get one of our virtual private server
plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the sign-up page. You'll be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you need to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you can pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you can order your server without Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to choose on our order page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels which we offer, therefore you will be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a large account, while the other two Control Panels allow you to generate numerous hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you are able to choose 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, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
