CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's well known as one of the most dependable and protected Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you have. What's even more, each version that's released officially is supported for a decade, which is a lot longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates which provides a dependable software setting for your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS
CentOS is among the Operating System choices provided by our Linux VPS
. You will get a quick, risk-free and reliable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the signup process. You may also choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with the other Linux releases. These options give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your personal websites and to control the server as one very powerful account, or to make multiple accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you wish to start a web hosting reseller business. When you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no additional software that is usually set up on it, you'll be able to order a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to completely modify the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to obtain CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you're able to choose on the registration page. CentOS supports all three hosting Control Panels that we provide, so you'll be able to choose Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be installed on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, due to the fact that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will enable you to generate a number of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS without any additional software, you will be able to choose a server setup without Control Panel at all. After that you can add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
