CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you find the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is ordinary security and stability updates that will provide a dependable software setting for all your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
When you get one of our VPS server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System possibilities on the signup page. You will be able to choose to run either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you'd like to have a VPS for another purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you will be able to order the server without Control Panel and you'll acquire a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll have a protected and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we offer with all our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the requirements of the apps that you want to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the entire server like an individual account irrespective of the number of domain names
that you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to generate an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not choose any Control Panel, you will get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide weekly OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on your dedicated server.
