CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need 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 some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is much longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary security and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System solutions offered by our VPS web hosting packages
. You'll get an efficient, well-protected and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You may also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to maintain the entire server as a very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and provide access to other people if, for instance, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, but with no extra software which is usually installed on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to acquire CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can select on our registration page. CentOS supports all three website hosting Control Panels that we supply, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to make numerous website hosting accounts on the server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you want CentOS without any additional software, you're able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
