CentOS is short for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux distributions for servers and it is regarded as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you can personalize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall price that you will need to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be more affordable than the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS unique among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply 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 other operating system. This means routine safety and stability updates which will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Hosting
CentOS is one of several Operating System choices provided by our VPS hosting. You'll get a fast, secure and reliable machine using a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the sign-up process. You will also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that is not possible with other Linux releases. These options provide you with the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with your VPS - to host your own Internet sites and to take care of the entire server as one very powerful account, or to set up a number of accounts and give access to others if, for example, you intend to start a website hosting reseller business. In case you're more experienced and you need a server with CentOS, however without the further software that's usually set up on it, you're able to buy a VPS without any Control Panel. This will help you entirely customize the software environment for your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems that we supply with all our dedicated server packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and make sure that the software environment on your new server matches the specifications of the apps that you would like to install. In contrast to other Operating Systems, CentOS also allows you to select from a couple of website hosting Control Panels, depending on what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you will be able to manage the entire server like a single account whatever the number of domains which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you can generate an independent account for each and every domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a web hosting reseller business. In case you don't pick any Control Panel, you will receive your server with CentOS only, since the software that comes with the Control Panels will not be installed. We also offer regular OS updates included in our Managed Services package, so you won't have to spend time and effort downloading and setting up the most recent and most secure software on your dedicated server.
