CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the program 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 total price that you will have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any alternative OS. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a great software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you can pick on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you can choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to generate numerous website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you'll be 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, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
