CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is recognized as being one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's 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 much lower as compared to the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is longer than with any other OS. What this means is routine protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to pick CentOS for your new virtual private server during the sign-up process. We offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases, so as to give you the chance to select the one that will be more suitable for the apps that you'd like to set up and work with. CentOS supports a variety of hosting Control Panels, so you will have a choice between cPanel, Hepsia and DirectAdmin, based on what you'd like to do - to set up a separate account for every single domain hosted on your server and even to start your reseller business, or to host all your domains together and manage the entire server as a single account. You will also have the choice to purchase the VPS without Control Panel in case you need a machine with CentOS, but without the additional software that comes with the Control Panels. This way, you can easily set up web or database servers that are different from the default ones that we offer.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages which we supply, due to the fact that this OS is on the list of options which you will be able to pick during the order process. As the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of website hosting Control Panels, so if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you are able to manage the server as if you're managing one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have individual accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, as the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates weekly and will ensure that your server is secure and has the most up-to-date software at all times, in order to guarantee the best possible performance for your sites.
