CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you are able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of all of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is a lot longer than with any other operating system. This means ordinary safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System possibilities offered by our Linux VPS hosting packages
. You will get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to maintain the server as a single very powerful account, or to make many different accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, yet with no additional software that is usually set up on it, you will be able to buy a VPS without Control Panel. This allows you to fully modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with our dedicated server
packages. During the signup process, you can choose 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 wish to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you'll be able to manage the entire server like an individual account regardless of the number of domain names
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an individual account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't select any Control Panel, you'll get the server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend effort and time downloading and installing the most up-to-date and most protected software on the dedicated server.
