CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, which will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you get one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You're able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you wish to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you are able to order your server without any 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'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
When you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you will be able to pick during the registration process. Since the software that you want to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're controlling a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have separate accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature this a functionality. If you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will make sure that your server is protected and has the most recent software at all times, so as to guarantee the best possible performance for your websites.
