CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it's recognized as one of the most dependable and safe Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to personalize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or changing the program code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you will not need to pay any kind of license fees, which means that the overall price that you'll have to pay for a server making use of CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with an alternative OS. What makes CentOS stand out among various other Linux releases is its huge developer society, which will help you discover the reply to any kind of question or problem you have. What's more, each version that's released officially is supported for 10 years, that's is longer than with any other operating system. What this means is frequent protection and stability updates that provides a dependable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is one of the Operating System options offered by our VPS web hosting service
. You'll get an efficient, well-protected and dependable machine provided with a 32- or 64-bit OS, based on the selection that you've made through the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will provide you with the opportunity to decide what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your personal Internet sites and to manage the entire server as a very powerful account, or to create many different accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you want to start a website hosting reseller business. When you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but with no further software that's usually installed on it, you'll be able to get a VPS without any Control Panel. This will allow you to entirely customize the software environment for your Internet sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
You're able to acquire CentOS with each dedicated server
which we offer, as 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options which you will be able to choose on the registration page. CentOS is compatible with all three hosting Control Panels that we offer, which means that you are able to select Hepsia, DirectAdmin or cPanel to be set up on the server. The first is appropriate for less experienced users that need a powerful website hosting solution, considering that a Hepsia-equipped server is controlled like one very large account, whereas the other two Control Panels will allow you to create a number of hosting accounts on your server and even to resell the website hosting space. If you need CentOS with no additional software, you will be able to select a server setup without Control Panel at all. You can then add just the software that you need. We also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly CentOS updates.
