CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you'll be 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 license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than 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 get the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, which is a lot longer than with any alternative OS. 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 Servers
When you buy one of our VPS server
plans, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the signup page. You will be able to decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you wish to set up later. Unlike other Linux releases, CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etcetera. If you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you need different software on it, you're able to order your server without 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 safe and reliable web hosting service for all of your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to obtain one of the dedicated server
plans that we provide, you can pick the CentOS Operating System for your new machine. Due to the fact that it is very light and efficient, you will be able to utilize all of the system resources for your Internet site. CentOS supports all 3 web hosting Control Panels that we supply - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. This way, you'll be able to use the dedicated server for virtually any purpose - to host all of your personal websites in just a single account, to create separate Control Panels for each and every domain name
or even to resell web hosting plans to other people. You may also purchase a server without a Control Panel and install any custom-made software that you need, in place of the default apps that we install on each machine that is ordered with a Control Panel. If you add our optional Managed Services bundle throughout the signup process or at any later time, we'll perform weekly CentOS updates besides all the other things which are part of the package.
