CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the leading Linux releases for servers and it is well known as being one of the most reliable and secure Operating Systems on the market. CentOS is open-source software, so you'll be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means 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 working with some other 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 might have. Furthermore, each version that's released officially is supported for ten years, which is a lot longer than with any other OS. What this means is frequent security and stability updates which provides a great software setting for all your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Web Hosting
When you order one of our virtual private server
packages, you will see CentOS as one of the Operating System selections on the registration page. You'll be able to choose to set up either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, according to the software that you would like to install later. Unlike other Linux distributions, CentOS supports different web hosting Control Panels as well, so you can select Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed during the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, etc. If you need a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order your server without any Control Panel and you will obtain a machine with CentOS and the Apache web server software only. With a CentOS-powered virtual server from us, you'll enjoy a safe and reliable hosting service for all of your web sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers Hosting
CentOS is one of the Operating Systems which we offer with our dedicated server
packages. Throughout the registration process, you'll be able to pick from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS and ensure that the software environment on your new server meets the specifications of the apps that you would like to set up. Unlike other Operating Systems, CentOS will also allow you to pick from various website hosting Control Panels, according to what you need the server for. With Hepsia, for instance, you can control the server like a single account regardless of the number of domains
which you host, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for each domain name, which will give you the opportunity to start a hosting reseller business. If you don't choose any Control Panel, you'll get your server with CentOS only, as the software that comes with the Control Panels won't be installed. We also offer you regular OS updates as part of our own Managed Services package, so you will not have to devote effort and time downloading and installing the most current and most protected software on your dedicated server.
