CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is recognized as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you find the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with each and every VPS server that we provide and you can select it during the order process from among a couple of other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you need to install and run, you are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and then your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This enables you to choose if you want to use the server for your very own sites and to control it as a single large account, or if you want to be able to generate a variety of web hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you may also acquire a VPS without Control Panel and you will get a server with an Operating System and the Apache web server software, but no other thing on it, so you can install just the software which you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, due to the fact that this OS is one of the options that you are able to pick during the order process. As the software that you wish to use can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing one very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can have independent accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most recent software at all times, in order to ensure the best performance for your Internet sites.
