CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as being one of the most stable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you can customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be much lower than the price for a server running an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, that will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, that is is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software setting for all of your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you order one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You can decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, determined by the software that you'd like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed throughout the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you need a VPS for a different purpose or if you'd like to have different software on it, you are able to order your server with no 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 have a secure and reliable web hosting service for your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, due to the fact that this Operating System is one of the options which you'll be able to choose through the registration process. As the software that you intend to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS supports different website hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can control the server like you're managing a single very large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have distinct accounts for the domain names that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature such a functionality. In case you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is secure and it has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the optimum performance for your websites.
