CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you can personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is much longer than with any alternative OS. What this means is regular safety and stability updates that provides a stable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating System solutions provided by our Linux VPS web hosting. You'll get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the choice that you've made through the signup process. You may also pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which isn't possible with other Linux releases. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to manage the whole server as a very powerful account, or to make a number of accounts and give access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no extra software that is usually set up on it, you will be able to get a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely modify the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is among the Operating Systems which we provide with our dedicated server plans. Throughout the signup process, you will be able to choose 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 requirements of the apps that you'd like to install. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to choose between various web hosting Control Panels, determined by what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to take care of the server like an individual account regardless of the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to generate an independent account for each and every domain, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you do not select any Control Panel, you'll receive your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates included in our own Managed Services package, so you will not need to invest time and effort downloading and installing the latest and most secure software on your dedicated server.
