CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most dependable and safe 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 changing the program code of all 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 total price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper than the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you get the answer to any kind of question or problem you may have. What's even more, 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 security and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System choices provided by our VPS servers
. You'll get a quick, well-protected and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, depending on the selection that you've made through the sign-up process. You'll also be able to choose from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your Internet sites and to take care of the entire server as a very powerful account, or to set up many different accounts and provide access to other people if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but devoid of the extra software that is usually set up on it, you're able to obtain a VPS without any Control Panel. This will enable you to entirely customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we offer, since this Operating System is on the list of options that you are able to select during the registration process. As the software that you want to run can have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with a variety of web hosting Control Panels, and if you acquire a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to manage the server like you're controlling a single large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have distinct accounts for the domains
which you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades every week and will ensure that your server is safe and has the most recent software at all times, to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
