CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in any 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 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 running CentOS will be lower than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent safety and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server that we provide, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to pick on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, which means that you will be able to pick Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to set up numerous website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you can select a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly CentOS updates.
