CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most stable and risk-free Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be able to personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program 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 will need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server running some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. This means frequent protection and stability updates that will provide a dependable software environment for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is among the Operating System options offered by our Linux VPS
. You'll get an efficient, secure and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made during the signup process. You will also be able to select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your websites and to take care of the entire server as a single very powerful account, or to set up multiple accounts and give access to others if, for instance, you want to start a hosting reseller business. If you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, however with no additional software that's usually installed on it, you will be able to obtain a VPS without Control Panel. This will help you fully customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
When you decide to order one of the dedicated server
packages that we supply, you're able to select the CentOS Operating System for your machine. As it is very light and fast, you will be able to utilize all the resources for your site. CentOS supports all of the 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you are able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host your personal websites in a single account, to set up separate Control Panels for each and every domain or even to resell website hosting plans to other people. You can also purchase a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software which you need, instead of the default applications that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel.
