CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it's recognized as one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying 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 running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. This means regular security and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
When you purchase one of our virtual private server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the sign-up page. You can decide to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you need to set up later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different 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, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you want different software on it, you are able to order the server with no Control Panel and you will acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you will enjoy a protected and reliable website hosting service for all of your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we supply with all of our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server will meet the specifications of the applications that you would like to set up. Compared to other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you are able to manage the server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to generate an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. If you do not pick any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also provide regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and setting up the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
