CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not 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 lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. In addition, each version which is released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is regular safety and stability updates which provides a great software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you order one of our VPS server plans, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You can decide to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, determined by the software that you would like to set up later. In contrast to other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to choose Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you can order your server without any Control Panel and you'll get a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the sign-up process, you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the applications that you'd like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to select from a couple of web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for example, you're able to take care of the whole server like an individual account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to make an independent account for each and every domain, that can give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. In case you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also provide you with weekly OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to spend time and effort downloading and installing the most recent and most protected software on your dedicated server.
