CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper 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 society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is accessible with every single VPS server that we offer and you will be able to select it during the order process from among a few other Operating Systems. Determined by the software that you would like to set up and run, you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version then your new VPS will be up and running shortly after that. CentOS supports all the three website hosting Control Panels which we provide - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will help you choose if you want to use the server for your very own Internet sites and to manage it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to make various hosting accounts and eventually resell them to others. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS with no Control Panel and you will get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can set up only the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server which we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you're able to select on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels that we supply, so you're able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to set up various web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you're able to select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. Then you can add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
