CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need 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 unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for a decade, which is longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which will provide a reliable software environment for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our VPS hosting plans
. You'll get a quick, risk-free and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the signup process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal sites and to take care of the whole server as a very powerful account, or to make various accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software which is usually installed on it, you can get a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server
which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to select on our registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three web hosting Control Panels which we supply, which means that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first one is appropriate for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a very large account, while the other two Control Panels will help you set up multiple web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
