CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's well known as being one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you will be able to personalize it in whatever 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 will not have to pay any license fees, meaning that the overall 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 running some other OS. What makes CentOS unique among other Linux releases is its huge developer community, that will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. In addition, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that is is longer than with any alternative operating system. This means regular protection and stability updates that will provide a reliable software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System choices on the signup page. You are able to choose to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of CentOS, according to the software that you intend to set up later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you will be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, along with web server software, MySQL server software, etc. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you'd like to install different software on it, you can order the server with no Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from our company, you'll enjoy a secure and reliable web hosting service for all of your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we supply, because this OS is one of the options that you can select through the order process. Since the software that you wish to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, and if you get a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to control the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll be able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since both the Control Panels offer this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is protected and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to guarantee the optimum performance for your sites.
