CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux releases for servers and it is well known as one of the most dependable and risk-free Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you are able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or updating the program code of any of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any kind of license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll have to pay for a server running CentOS will be lower as compared to the price for a server running 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 question or problem you have. In addition, each version that is released officially is supported for 10 years, which is much longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is frequent security and stability updates that provides a stable software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
If you acquire one of our VPS server packages, you'll see CentOS as one of the Operating System options on the signup page. You can decide to install either the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of CentOS, depending on the software that you need to install later. In contrast to other Linux releases, CentOS supports different hosting Control Panels as well, so you'll be able to pick Hepsia, cPanel or DirectAdmin, each of which can be installed through the VPS creation, as well as web server software, MySQL server software, and so on. When you'd like to have a VPS for some other purpose or if you need different software on it, you are able to order the 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 website hosting service for all your sites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the packages that we offer, because this Operating System is one of the options which you are able to choose through the registration process. Since the software that you would like to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS works with various website hosting Control Panels, which means that if you acquire a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to control the server like you're managing one large account, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains which you host and can even start a reseller business, as both the Control Panels feature such a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS upgrades weekly and will make sure that your server is safe and has the most up-to-date software at all times, to ensure the best possible performance for your sites.
