CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems out there. 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 changing the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the answer to any question or problem you might have. What's even more, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that's is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine safety and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is offered with every single VPS server
that we offer and you can select it through the order process from among several other Operating Systems. Depending on the software that you would like to set up and run, you're able to pick between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version and your new VPS will be online soon after that. CentOS supports all the three web hosting Control Panels which we supply - cPanel, DirectAdmin and Hepsia. This will allow you to choose if you wish to employ the server for your own Internet sites and to control it as one large account, or if you want to be able to set up multiple website hosting accounts and resell them to other people. Of course, you can also obtain a VPS without Control Panel and you'll get a server with an OS and the Apache web server software, but nothing else on it, so that you can install just the software that you want for your apps.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get CentOS with each and every dedicated server
which we supply, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll be able to select on the order page. CentOS supports all three web hosting Control Panels which we provide, so that you'll be able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is suitable for less experienced users who need a powerful web hosting solution, since a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like a large account, while the other two Control Panels will allow you to generate a number of web hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the web hosting space. If you want CentOS with no additional software, you can choose a server setup with no Control Panel at all. You can then add only the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly CentOS updates.
