CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and protected Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you find the reply to any question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary protection and stability updates which will provide a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is one of the Operating System options offered by our VPS
. You will get an efficient, secure and reliable machine along with a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the choice that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to choose what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to maintain the server as one very powerful account, or to generate different accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however without the further software that's usually installed on it, you can acquire a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to entirely modify the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to obtain CentOS with each dedicated server
which we supply, since 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you are able to select on our registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so that you're able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on your server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who want a powerful web hosting solution, because a Hepsia-equipped server is managed like a single very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels allow you to generate a variety of website hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you'll be able to pick 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, that features weekly CentOS updates.
