CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates which will provide a dependable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you purchase one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the sign-up page. You'll be able to decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, based on the software that you'd like to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for another purpose or if you need different software on it, you'll be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you will enjoy a secure and reliable hosting service for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You can get CentOS with each dedicated server which we offer, because 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three website hosting Control Panels that we offer, so you're able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels enable you to make a number of web hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can pick 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.
